The ISTT (International Society for Transgenic Technologies) Young Investigator Award identifies and recognizes young scientists who advance the science and technologies in the generation and analysis of transgenic animal models for biomedical research and biotechnology applications.

Davide Seruggia received the award for his successful complex projects requiring advanced CRISPR technology: He pioneered CRISPR genome-editing techniques and used these CRISPR methods for the functional investigation of regulatory elements found at the non-coding area of mammalian genomes (Seruggia et al. 2015, 2020).
