    Programming life: An interview with Jennifer Doudna

    Programming life: An interview with Jennifer Doudna

    The Bio Revolution has the potential to transform our lives, and genome editing—the ability to change the DNA sequence in a targeted way using CRISPR-Cas9, is one of the key innovations that has sparked imaginations while also raising its fair share of controversy. What is the origin of this technique? How do we weigh the enormous benefits against the potential risks? And what is its role in solving the global coronavirus pandemic? As part of the McKinsey Global Institute’s research on the Bio Revolution, partner Michael Chui spoke with Jennifer Doudna, PhD, one of the scientists who discovered the genome-editing technique CRISPR-Cas9 and leading proponent of its responsible use. Jennifer is a professor of molecular and cell biology and chemistry at the University of California, Berkeley. The Doudna lab pursues a mechanistic understanding of fundamental biological processes involving RNA molecules.

    Forward Thinking on the Bio Revolution with Jason Kelly and Dr. Michelle McMurry-Heath

    Forward Thinking on the Bio Revolution with Jason Kelly and Dr. Michelle McMurry-Heath

    You’ve heard about the Industrial Revolution and the digital revolution. But now, we’re heading into a Bio Revolution. And this is going to transform the economy and society in many ways—even beyond health and agriculture. And we need to understand both the potential for good and how to avoid the pitfalls.

    In this episode, we start with a picture of the science that’s happening, then explore where might these advances lead. Our guests are two people doing truly amazing work literally on the very frontiers of where these advances are taking place. Jason Kelly is the founder of Ginkgo Bioworks, a biotech company that describes itself as “the organism company.” And Dr. Michelle McMurry-Heath is the president and CEO of the Biological Innovation Organization (BIO).

    Interview date: November 2020

    A happy warrior: Mellody Hobson on mentorship, diversity, and feedback

    A happy warrior: Mellody Hobson on mentorship, diversity, and feedback

    As part of Black History Month, MGI co-chair James Manyika had an open, candid conversation with Mellody Hobson and an audience of McKinsey colleagues in the San Francisco office. “You can almost pick any arena you want in American business, society, and community, and I think you’ll probably find Mellody involved, playing some important pioneering role there.” From her childhood on the South Side of Chicago, to Princeton, to leading Ariel Investments and now chairing the board of Starbucks, Mellody Hobson is an inspirational business leader and investor. She shares her journey, a peek into her how she sees her work, and gives advice on mentorship, sponsorship, and difficult feedback. On that note, she says: “Accept it, do not push back, do not fight. If this feedback is a gift, take it for what it is.”

    This conversation was recorded on February 21, 2020.

    Forward Thinking on Unemployment with Sir Christopher Pissarides

    Forward Thinking on Unemployment with Sir Christopher Pissarides

    Millions of people have lost their jobs over the past year, and the jobs that are going to be available coming out of the pandemic might be really different from those that were available even a few years ago. Just think about some of the jobs that employed a lot of people before: in-person services like personal care, dining, travel, and leisure. All those things have been decimated by the impact of COVID. How many of these are coming back? How do we help unemployed workers find new jobs and new career paths? What support do they need along the way? Would we or could we even get to no unemployment? What really works when it comes to policies to address these problems? How do we even know they’re working?
    We ask these questions (and more) to Sir Chris Pissarides, He’s a Nobel prize-winning economist, the professor of economics at London School of Economics, and professor of European studies at the University of Cyprus. Chris specializes in labor markets, macroeconomic policy, economic growth, and structural change.

    This conversation was recorded in February 2021.

    Introducing “Forward Thinking” from the McKinsey Global Institute

    Forward Thinking is a new podcast series hosted by Michael Chui and Anna Bernasek. We want to inform and provoke your thinking by interviewing names you may know—like Nobel prizewinners Jennifer Doudna and Sir Christopher Pissarides—and by introducing up-and-comers you should know. We ask experts to tell us about the key changes they see that will shape our lives, our businesses, and our societies…Including what comes next after COVID-19, global health, climate change, the future of work, diversity, inclusion, inequality, and cutting-edge technology like the bio revolution and artificial intelligence. Interviews are underpinned by deep McKinsey Global Institute research that provides fundamental insights needed by leaders like you.
