UC Berkeley molecular biologist Randy Schekman won the Nobel Prize for Medicine with two other scientists this week. But he says the kind of basic science research that led to his prize might have never gotten funded if he were applying for grants today. We talk with Schekman and UCSF scientist David Julius about the impact of federal budget cuts on the sciences.

Guests:

Randy Schekman, professor of molecular and cell biology at UC Berkeley, and winner of this year's Nobel Prize in medicine

David Julius, professor and chair of the Department of Physiology at UCSF
