Nobel Laureate Dr. Martin Chalfie


  Thursday, September 11, 2014

How does a biologist win the Nobel Prize for chemistry? That's one of the things we'll find out when we're joined by Dr. Martin Chalfie who won the prize in 2008. In town to be honored by Charlotte's Echo Foundation, he joins us to talk about molecular biology and the roles science and scientific research play in our world and in our future. And how chance, the influence of others and pigheadedness helped in his success.

Chalfie is in town to speak at the Echo Foundation Award Event, Wednesday, September 10, at 6:00 p.m.
