Imagine you had an expired tube of topical antibiotic (truthfully, most of us currently do) and you needed to decide if you should throw it away or give it to a friend who needs to use it.  It’s an easy decision, right?  You only need to consult yourself and possibly your friend, and if you decide to throw it away you have only lost a few dollars.

Event Description

Dr. Haber studies the cellular processes that repair DNA double strand breaks (DSBs). He pioneered the use of a single targeted DSB to tease out details of the repair pathways in yeast. His studies have had a profound impact on the entire field, including the repair of human DNA and genome editing. His most recent work continues to identify processing steps of DSBs and the genetic factors that influence them.  

Dr. Haber is the Abraham and Etta Goodman Professor of Biology at Brandeis University. He is a member of the National Academy of Sciences and a recipient of the Thomas Hunt Morgan Medal for Lifetime Achievement in Genetics by the Genetics Society of America. He is an avid collaborator and a generous authority on all things genetic. His scientific presentations are both engaging and accessible to a wide audience.
