Nobel Laureate joins School of Sustainability faculty

Lee HartwellAdding an additional layer of transdisciplinary knowledge to the program, Nobel Laureate Lee Hartwell – known for his work on the cutting edge of health science innovation – joins the School of Sustainability faculty. Hartwell was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 2001 for his discoveries of a specific class of genes that control the cell cycle. His interests have since turned to how researchers can use the enormous knowledge that has accumulated during the last 50 years in genetics and biochemistry to improve molecular diagnostics to benefit human health.
