Interview with Professor François Jacob by Joanna Rose, science writer, 8 December 2001.
Professor Jacob talks about the experience of going from “completely unknown to too much known” when the Pasteur Group was awarded the Nobel Prize. He talks about how he got into sciences in 1950 (1:56) and about his colleagues André Lwoff and Jacques Monod (5:48). He also shares his thoughts about the development of biology since 1950 (11:12).
Their work and discoveries range from how cells adapt to changes in levels of oxygen to our ability to fight global poverty.
