Nobel Prize-winner James D. Watson will visit the campus to discuss “Curing ‘Incurable’ Cancer.”
Watson was one of the team of scientists who in 1953 discovered the double helix structure of DNA, which some have called the most important scientific discovery of the 20th century. For this and more, Watson won the 1962 Nobel Prize in Physiology and Medicine, along with Francis Crick and Maurice Wilkins. Later in his career, Watson’s research turned to cancer.
Watson will speak to Yale students, faculty, and staff on Tuesday, March 20, at 5:30 pm in the Harkness Auditorium at 333 Cedar St.
