First Rounders podcast: Robert Langer

Like Comment

Bob Langer is the guest on the next episode of First Rounders – you can find it here, and wherever you get your podcasts.

He is a professor at MIT and runs the Langer Lab. The list of acknowledgments for his work is long, and includes the National Medal of Science. His First Rounders conversation covers growing up in Albany, NY; his journey from chemical engineering to the life sciences; and what it feels like to be called the most cited engineer in history.

For more on Langer, here’s a profile by Nature’s Helen Pearson, written in 2009. And here is his piece in Nature Biotechnology, defining his criteria for starting a biotech.
