After a lunch with MedImmune's junior scientists, Dr Mello was interviewed by the Nobel Media team - during that interview, we think we managed to capture some real insights into Dr Mello's career, his life, his research and his background - we can't wait to share them with you on our site over the coming weeks and months. All of Dr. Mello's visit was filmed by our hardy film crew, who took a well-earned break afterwards!
It looks like Dr Mello's visit was well-received - have a look at a selection of tweets from the event itself! Storify account of Dr. Mello's visit
All of the event photos, Dr Mello's lecture video, and a collection of highlights from the event can be viewed here.
Soon we'll share the many many pearls of wisdom that Dr Mello shared on his trip, in the form of bit-sized-clips. Expect to hear about everything from his experience at school, to receiving that phone call from Stockholm.
Before the Nobel Prize, Dr. Mello’s work on RNAi was recognised with several awards including the National Academy of Sciences Molecular Biology Award, the Canadian Gairdner International Award, the Paul Ehrlich and Ludwig Darmstaedter Award, and the Dr. Paul Janssen Award for Biomedical Research. He is a member of the National Academy of Sciences, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and the American Philosophical Society.
