Episode Summary

EDIT
Sir Paul Nurse: Great Ideas of Biology
AIRED:
Paul Nurse is the President of Rockefeller University, and Head of the Laboratory of Yeast Genetics and Cell Biology. He discovered the molecules at the heart of the "clock" which controls the progression of cells through their cycles of growth and division. He and his colleagues continue to explore the cell cycle, the control of cell growth, and the mechanisms by which cells acquire their shape.Among many other honors, Sir Paul shared the Nobel Prize for Medicine and Physiology in 2001. He is among the leading advocates for a more quantitative, theoretical approach to the phenomena of life, searching for ideas which can unify the vast quantities of data that overwhelm the field; it is this vision which animates his public lecture.moreless
