Description

Interview with Mark L. Shelton:
Craig C. Mello of the University of Massachusetts Medical School received the Nobel Prize in Physiology of Medicine in 2006 for his discovery, with Andrew Fire, of the phenomenon of “RNA interference - gene silencing by double-stranded RNA."  Their work gave scientists an entirely new way to study biology and potentially to find cures for a range of diseases.  Dr. Mello exemplifies the spirit of innovation and discovery that has characterized Worcester throughout its long history.
