Description: Demystifying Medicine Lecture Series

John Mather is the co-recipient of the 2006 Nobel Prize in Physics for his work in detecting the remnant radiation from the birth of the universe, called the cosmic microwave background, which strongly supported the "big bang" theory and which physicist Stephen Hawking described as "the most important discovery of the century, if not of all time." Mather now is project scientist for the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST), the planned successor to the Hubble Space Telescope.

Lippincott-Schwartz was chief of the NICHD Section on Organelle Biology before moving to the Janelia Research Campus in 2016. Her NIH lab hosted and provided the biological materials to Eric Betzig, who worked with Lippincott-Schwartz, George Patterson (now at NIBIB) and others to develop photoactivation localization microscopy (PALM), which ultimately earned Betzig the 2014 Nobel Prize in Chemistry.

The Demystifying Medicine Lecture Series is designed to help bridge the gap between advances in biology and their applications to major human diseases. The lectures include presentations of patients, pathology, diagnosis, and therapy in the context of major diseases and current research. All clinicians, trainees including fellows, medical students, Ph.D. students, and other healthcare and research professionals are welcome to attend.
