Description

James Watson , Nobel Prize Winner and author of Avoid Boring People: Lessons from a Life in Science, in conversation with Roy Eisenhardt.

Nobel Prize-winning geneticist James D. Watson once said, 'I think that people are born curious and they have it pounded out of them.' Watson's life has been devoted to curiosity, from his early interest in crystallography to tackling the mysteries of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA). Together with Francis Crick and Maurice Wilkins, James Watson was awarded the 1962 Nobel Prize for determining the double helix structure of DNA, of which all living matter is made. His account of the discovery, The Double Helix, is one of the Modern Library's 100 best non-fiction books. Watson shares his advice about life and learning in Avoid Boring People And Other Lessons from a Life in Science, a memoir. He was director of Cold Springs Harbor Laboratory in New York and is now its chancellor.
