NOBEL PRIZE WINNER RICHARD ROBERTS – ‘REBEL WITH A CAUSE’

Winner of a Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1993, Professor Richard J Roberts describes himself as ‘a rebel with a cause’. From the New England Biolabs in the United States, he will present an autobiographical account of his life as a scientist before his Nobel Prize win, and describe how the resulting celebrity has enhanced his ability and effectiveness in supporting good causes.

Professor Roberts quotes examples: “I have played an important role in supporting Open Access publication, as well as in promoting open access databases in general. Another contribution was obtaining the release of the Bulgarian nurses held in Libya on charges of deliberately spreading AIDS to children in the Benghazi children’s hospital,” concluded Roberts.
