The interviewer is Adam Smith, Editor-in-Chief of Nobelprize.org. Ferid Murad talks about his natural knack for science, why it took 100 years to discover how nitroglycerine works in the body (20:28), how light helped to shine light on nitric oxide (31:59), and why it is difficult for medical students nowadays to receive the research training that he received (49:20).
