Unlocking the Secrets of Our Cells: The Nobel Prize

This half hour documentary recognises four scientists whose work has enabled huge leaps forward in our understanding of medical research: 2012 Chemistry Laureates Robert J. Lefkowitz and Brian K. Kobilka and 2012 Medicine Laureates Sir John B. Gurdon and Shinya Yamanaka. The Laureates talk about their background, their work, and the story behind their groundbreaking research. Leading scientists explain how this work has influenced them, and patients tell us how they have been helped by these medical developments.
