1:2:1 Podcast : Nobel

  • A Nobel life

    One moment you’re a quiet scientist toiling in your lab at the Stanford School of Medicine. The next, you’re called upon to distill your life’s work into easily understood sound bites for worldwide audiences and pontificate about where your findings might lead. That’s what it’s like when you receive a Nobel Prize. In this podcast, Brian Kobilka, MD, professor and chair of molecular and cellular physiology, discusses winning this year's chemistry prize, his science and the valuable life lessons he learned watching his father and mother run a bakery in Little Falls, Minn.
