The GMGI Science Hour: GFP – Lighting Up Life

Speaker: Martin Chalfie, Columbia University

Dr. Chalfie, co-recipient of the Nobel Prize for Chemistry in 2008 for the discovery and development of Green Fluorescent Protein (GFP), explains the GFP gene’s capability as a biological marker revolutionized the biological sciences and contributed to major advances in genetics, cell biology, and neurobiology, and to a better understanding of cancer, Alzheimer’s and other diseases.
