HackettWe couldn’t be prouder of our co-founder, Dr. Perry Hackett, who was recognized by his research peers at University of Minnesota’s Inventor Recognition Event in the “Impact” category.

This award is given to the “researcher whose innovation has most positively and most broadly impacted quality of life. The innovation’s impact is readily understood by those outside of the awardee’s scientific discipline, including the general public.”

Dr. Hackett is a pioneer in genetic engineering and inventor of the Sleeping Beauty Transposon System for efficient delivery of DNA to a wide range of cells. 

Congratulations to Dr. Hackett for this well-deserved honor!
