    Martin Karplus discusses winning the Nobel Prize in Chemistry


    Martin Karplus, the Theodore William Richards Professor of Chemistry Emeritus at Harvard, is one of three winners of the 2013 Nobel Prize in chemistry, the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences announced this morning.

    The 83-year-old Vienna-born theoretical chemist, who is also affiliated with the Université de Strasbourg, Strasbourg, France, is a 1951 graduate of Harvard College and earned his Ph.D. in 1953 at the California Institute of Technology. While there, he worked with two-time Nobel laureate Linus Pauling, whom Karplus described as an important early influence.

    He shared the Nobel with researchers Michael Levitt of Stanford University and Arieh Warshel of the University of Southern California, Los Angeles. Warshel was once a postdoctoral student of Karplus, who had worked with both men during six months in Israel during the 1960s. All three were then at the Weizmann Institute of Science with chemist Shneior Lifson, but have not worked formally together since then.

    A Brilliant Madness: A Mathematical Genius Descent into Madness


    A Brilliant Madness is the story of a mathematical genius whose career was cut short by a descent into madness. At the age of 30, John Nash, a stunningly original and famously eccentric MIT mathematician, suddenly began claiming that aliens were communicating with him and that he was a special messenger.

    Diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia, Nash spent the next three decades in and out of mental hospitals, all but forgotten. During that time, a proof he had written at the age of 20 became a foundation of modern economic theory. In 1994, as Nash began to show signs of emerging from his delusions, he was awarded a Nobel Prize in Economics. The program features interviews with John Nash, his wife Alicia, his friends and colleagues, and experts in game theory and mental illness.

    Go beyond the Oscar-winning drama A Beautiful Mind and learn more about the life of troubled mathematician and Nobel Prize-winner John Nash and his struggle with mental illness in this PBS American Experience documentary. Exclusive interviews with Nash and wife Alicia are included.

    Illuminating the Future with Blue LEDs - The 2014 Nobel Prize in Physics


    The 2014 Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded jointly to Professor Isamu Akasaki from Meijo University, Professor Hiroshi Amano from Nagoya University, and Shuji Nakamura from the University of California for the invention of efficient blue light-emitting diodes which has enabled bright and energy-saving white light sources. Ahead of the Nobel Prize Award Ceremony on December 10, we'll be bringing you an exclusive interview with Professor Amano.
    It had been said that blue LEDs would not be realized within the 20th century due to the difficulty of making crystals out of gallium nitride. Professor Amano built an experiment device from scratch and conducted over 1,500 experiments before the team succeeded in creating gallium nitride crystals. In the interview he describes the methods he used, and how he acquired hints from failed experiments. We'll also be introducing the latest LED research that Professor Amano is involved in, and the leading-edge of LED development in Japan.

    25 People Who Should Have Won The Nobel Peace Prize But Didnt


    Tweet this video! -

    The Nobel Peace Prize is the most controversial of the five Nobel Prizes—Physics, Chemistry, Literature, Peace and Physiology. Not only is this the most coveted; it is also the most significant out of all other awards since this award is awarded to individuals who have done the best work for the fraternity of nations, as well as for the eradication of groups and armies that encumber the massive promotion of peace among people of all nations. Ever since Alfred Nobel chose peace as a category for the Noble Prize, it has been subject to several controversies. He/she-should-have-won claims have been pervasive, and debates as to who is more deserving to win have been ongoing year after year. So, according to popular opinion, here is a list of the 25 people who should have won the Noble Peace Prize but didn't.

    Conversations in Science with Dan Rather and Nobel Laureate Paul Nurse


    Audio only:
    Paul Nurse and Dan Rather have both spent their lives looking at the world and how it works, albeit from very different perspectives. Now the Nobel Prize winning geneticist and esteemed journalist come together for a frank and thoughtful conversation on the state of science and its role in society. Topics include climate change, GMOs, science education, how research spurs economic development, and Dr. Nurse's own remarkably inspiring and surprising personal history. Funding for this interview was provided by the Lasker Foundation.

    Sir Paul Nurse is a leading geneticist, science advocate, and policy maker who has had an major impact on science throughout his career. Nurse won the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 2001 for the discovery of the protein cdc2/CDK1, a cyclin-dependent kinase that is the key regulator of the cell cycle. He is currently President of the Royal Society and Chief Executive and Director of the Francis Crick Institute and previously served as President of Rockefeller University. In addition to the Nobel Prize, he has received numerous awards and honors for his vast achievements including the Lasker Award for Basic Medical Research, the Royal Medal, election as a foreign associate into the US National Academy of Sciences, and knighthood.

    Dan Rather has a resume that reads like a history book. He has interviewed every American president since Eisenhower and personally covered almost every important global dateline of the last 60 years, from the Civil Rights Movement to Vietnam, to Watergate to the terrorist attacks of 9/11. Rather helped pioneer the very idea that television could be a place for news, and he has kept that spirit of innovation alive by constantly pushing the boundaries of what video storytelling could accomplish. His independent production company News and Guts specializes in high-quality non-fiction content across a range of traditional and digital distribution channels. He has a special interest in telling the stories of science.

    How to win a Nobel Prize -- 9 simple steps | Dr. Michael Brown | TEDxUTA


    This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. After receiving a Nobel Prize learn some of the steps taken to earn a Nobel Prize. If you follow these simple steps you might find yourself on the concert hall stage in Stockholm.

    Michael S. Brown received a BA degree in Chemistry in 1962 and an MD degree in 1966 from the University of Pennsylvania. He was an intern and resident at the Massachusetts General Hospital, and a postdoctoral fellow with Dr. Earl Stadtman at the National Institutes of Health. In 1971, he came to UT Southwestern where he rose through the ranks to become a professor in 1976. He is currently Paul J. Thomas Professor of Molecular Genetics and Director of the Jonsson Center for Molecular Genetics at UT Southwestern. Dr. Brown and his long-time colleague, Dr. Joseph L. Goldstein, together discovered the low density lipoprotein (LDL) receptor, which controls the level of cholesterol in blood and in cells. They showed that mutations in this receptor cause Familial Hypercholesterolemia, a disorder that leads to premature heart attacks in one out of every 500 people in most populations. They have received many awards for this work, including the U.S. National Medal of Science and the Nobel Prize for Medicine or Physiology.
