Full program


Dr. Roger D. Kornberg

Dr. Kornberg has had an extremely distinguished career as a biochemist and structural biologist, and was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2006. After training in chemistry at Harvard University, followed by a PhD in chemical physics at Stanford, he went to Cambridge in the United Kingdom where, as a postdoctoral fellow, he proved the existence of the histone octamer in complex with DNA.

His illustrious career as a professor and researcher at Stanford is marked by multiple discoveries contributing to our understanding of how transcription proceeds in eukaryotes.
