Dr. James E. Rothman is the Fergus F. Wallace Professor of Biological Sciences and Chemistry, Chairman and Professor of Cell Biology, and Professor of Chemistry at Yale University. He is one of the world’s most distinguished biochemists and cell biologists, awarded the Nobel Prize last year in Physiology and Medicine for his work on how molecular messages are transmitted inside and outside of our cells. He provided the conceptual framework for understanding such diverse and important processes as the release of insulin into the blood, communication between nerve cells in the brain, and the entry of viruses to infect cells.
The lecture is free and open to the public and will take place in the Historical Library. A reception will follow in the Morse Reading Room.
