Yun Song

Two Miller Members are among the 47 new investigators chosen by the Chan Zuckerberg Biohub to receive up to $1.5 million each over the next five years to conduct cutting-edge biomedical research

Yun Song (Miller Professor Spring 2014) to derive novel mathematical formulas and new analytical techniques for inferring demographic history from population genetic data and for increasing the power of genome-wide natural selection scans.

Jill Banfield

Jill Banfield (Miller Professor 2006 - 2007) - to explore the medical, industrial and ecological significance of newly found microorganisms.

Jennifer Doudna

Doudna awarded Japan Prize for invention of CRISPR gene editing

Jennifer Doudna (Miller Senior Fellow 2017), a UC Berkeley professor of molecular and cell biology and of chemistry and a Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigator was awarded the Japan Prize for invention of the revolutionary gene-editing technology known as CRISPR-Cas9, which has swept into research labs around the world and is already yielding new therapies for cancer and hereditary diseases.

Norman Yao

Norman Yao unveils new form of matter: time crystals

Norman Yao (Miller Fellow 2014 - 2017), a UC Berkeley assistant professor of physics describes exactly how to make and measure the properties of such a crystal, and even predicts what the various phases surrounding the time crystal should be — akin to the liquid and gas phases of ice.
