Duke Looks at the future of Medical Science
Durham, NC - Carol Greider, (pictured) professor at The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, discusses path- breaking work on telomerase, which protect chromo- some ends and distinguish them from DNA breaks in the cell. Greider was one of the researchers who initially pointed to the role of telomeres and telomerase dysfunction in cell death and cancer, one of the potentially fruitful areas of research that are attracting medical scholars. Greider was one of a collection of medical scholars who spoke to the next big ideas in medical science as part of a two-day symposium held by Duke Medicine as part of its 75th anniversary celebration. The event included talks by Nobel Prize winners, including keynote speaker Paul Nurse. For more on the conference, read the story by the Associated Press.
