First Rounders: Tom Maniatis

Like Comment


Our First Rounders podcast with guest Tom Maniatis can be found here. More information on the launch of Tom’s start up Kallyope can be found in this article from STAT, and here’s the link to his lab at Columbia. Our conversation covered the moratorium on recombinant DNA in Cambridge, Massachusetts; more information in this article from Science. There is plenty to read out there about Jim Watson, who was a long-standing mentor to Tom, including this article about Jim selling his Nobel prize (though apparently it was given back?), or a bit of his biography. For those unfamiliar with the horrors of Agent Orange, here’s the Wikipedia entry.
