The Shape of Things to Come: Nobel Laureate Dr. Lee Hartwell Speaks to the Kellogg Biotechnology Students (PDF 102 KB / 13 pages)

by Robert Levak KSM '02 and Sriram Jambunathan KSM ’03

Kellogg Biotechnology students, Sriram Jambunathan ’03 and Robert Levak ‘02 flew to Seattle to interview Dr Lee Hartwell, the recipient of the 2001 Nobel Prize in physiology and medicine. Hartwell and two other British scientists, Dr. Paul Nurse and Dr. Timothy Hunt were honored for the work they contributed toward the understanding of how one cell divides into two daughter cells. Dr Hartwell is the president and director of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and a professor of genetics at the University of Washington. The students questioned him on topics ranging from intellectual property and escalating costs of new medical therapies to his vision of the future of medicine and his deep concerns in the realm of scientific medical research.
