Eric Paul Bennett

Lektor

Eric P. Bennett has obtained both his master degree in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (MSc) and doctoral degree (Dr Med) from the University of Copenhagen. His research efforts at the Copenhagen Center for Glycomics, University of Copenhagen, have been concentrated in the field of Glycobiology where he 2 decades ago cloned and identified more than 30 human glycosyltransferase encoded genes (glycogenes).

For the last 9 years his efforts have been focused on ways of establishing precision-engineered isogenic cells lacking individual glycogenes. Using the recently emerged nuclease targeting technologies, such as ZFN, TALEN and CRISPR/Cas9 these efforts have among others led to establishment of novel methodologies that both improve the targeting and indel detection efficacy of precise gene targeting.

The methods and principles developed show great translational potential into the biotech and therapeutic genome targeting space.
