Two Bay Area scientists have won the 2022 Nobel Prize. Stanford’s Carolyn Bertozzi  is one of just eight women to ever win the prize in chemistry (out of 189 total winners). Faculty and students described her as “an inspiration for women and queer people in STEM.” John Clauser, now 79 years old, received the prize in physics for research he conducted 50 years ago on quantum entanglement - research that he says was considered irrelevant at the time, but has since provided the foundation for quantum computation and quantum communication. Bertozzi and Clauser join Forum to talk about their work and take your science questions.

Guests:

Dr. John Clauser, winner of the 2022 Nobel Prize in physics

Dr. Carolyn Bertozzi, winner of the 2022 Nobel Prize in Chemistry; professor, Stanford University
