Headshot of Channabasavaiah Gurumurthy, PhD

Dr. CB Gurumurthy (Guru) develops and improves mouse genome editing technologies. In collaboration with Dr. Masato Ohtsuka, Tokai University, Japan, he has published several landmark papers on CRISPR and mouse genome engineering technologies. Two of their breakthrough technologies, Easi-CRISPR and i-GONAD, are now widely adapted at core facilities and laboratories. Several hundreds to thousands of mouse models are generated each year using their methods.

Dr. Guru has received over 100 invitations within USA and over 20 invitations from 12 countries to deliver keynote talks or presentations, to organize workshops, and to chair sessions at conferences.

He continues to develop newer technologies related to gene editing and gene therapy.
