Bruce Beutler, 2011 Nobel Laureate in Physiology or Medicine
Bruce Beutler discusses his work which led to the 2011 Nobel Prize, explaining why it is important and describing the forward genetic approach used. As he maintains, the two phenomena that he and his team study - host resistance to infection and inflammatory and autoimmune disease - are "objectively speaking, among the most important phenomena in all of biomedical science.” On 12 June, Bruce Beutler gave a second lecture to scientists at AstraZeneca’s Boston-based research and development centre, titled, "Random Germline Mutagenesis in the Analysis of Immunity”.
