Nobel Breakthroughs

Wednesday, December 16
9:00 a.m. PST | Noon EST

On October 6, 2020, UCLA Professor Andrea Ghez won a Nobel Prize in Physics for her discovery of a supermassive black hole at the center of our galaxy. The next day, UC Berkeley Professor Jennifer Doudna won a Nobel Prize in Chemistry for the development of CRISPR-Cas9, a powerful genome editing breakthrough that allows scientists to rewrite DNA in any organism, including human cells. UCLA Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost Emily A. Carter, a distinguished scientist and member of the National Academy of Sciences, welcomes the two Nobel laureates to discuss the science behind their discoveries, their current research, how they achieved world-class research results and the significance of their Nobel Prizes for women and youth who have a passion for science.

Closed captioning will be available in English and Spanish.
