First Person: Nobel Prize-winner Elizabeth BlackburnDownload audio (MP3)
Elizabeth Blackburn's curiosity about telomeres -- little pieces of DNA that cap the ends of chromosomes -- opened new research possibilities into growth, aging and disease. For her work, the UCSF biologist shared the 2009 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine. She joins us in the studio as part of our "First Person" series spotlighting local leaders, innovators and other notable characters.
