CSHL's resident historian, Jan Witkowski, regularly conducts interviews with the scientists who come to present at meetings here on campus. The Symposia week is a particularly busy time for him, but his hard work and effort pay off handsomely. For instance, in 2016, Jan had the pleasure to interview Bill Kaelin about his work on oxygen-sensing in cancer. As of today, October 7, 2019, it has been announced that Bill shares the 2019 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for this work!
You can watch the interview here, and learn all about Bill's impoortant research, as well as Jan's tireless efforts to bring an understanding of high-caliber work like Bill's to the broader public.
