Marshall Nirenberg: Interview

In 1968 Marshall Nirenberg won both the Lasker Award and the Nobel in medicine or physiology. It was for his work on the team that provided interpretation on the genetic code and its function in protein synthesis. Recently Nirenberg met with Richard Cohen at the National Institutes of Health where he's been working since he was 33 years old.
