      Gary Ruvkun talks to Venkatesan Sundaresan

    • Abstract


      Gary Ruvkun is a winner of the 2015 Breakthrough Prize in Life Sciences. He is a codiscoverer of microRNAs (with Victor Ambros, University of Massachusetts), regarded as one of the seminal discoveries of 21st century molecular biology. In addition to the Breakthrough Prize, Ruvkun and Ambros have received the Warren Triennial Prize, the Laskar Foundation Award, and numerous other awards and prizes. Professor Ruvkun obtained his PhD from Harvard University, did his postdoctoral research at MIT, and subsequently accepted a faculty position at Harvard, where he is currently Professor of Genetics. His laboratory conducts research on basic cellular processes, using the worm \italics{C. elegans} as a model system.
