About this Event

You're invited to "GFP: Lighting Up Life", a public lecture and Q&A with Martin Chalfie, hosted by the Department of Chemistry at the University of Toronto in partnership with AstraZeneca. Dr. Chalfie was awarded the 2008 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for the discovery and development of the green fluorescent protein, GFP.

This talk is part of the Nobel Prize Inspiration Initiative.

GFP: Lighting Up Life

Martin Chalfie's story of discovering and developing GFP paints a picture of how scientific progress is often made: through accidental discoveries, the willingness to ignore previous assumptions, and the combined efforts of many people. His story also shows us the importance of basic research on non-traditional organisms.
