<DIV> Peter Doherty recounts his unlikely path to becoming a Nobel Laureate, revealing how his nonconformist upbringing, sense of being an outsider, and search for a different perspective have shaped his life and work. Beginning with his humble origins in Australia, Doherty shares his early interests and describes his award-winning, influential work with Rolf Zinkernagel on T-cells and the nature of immune defense. In prose that is amusing and astute, Doherty offers a rare insider's look at the realities of being a research scientist. He lucidly explains his own scientific work and the selection, funding, and organization of research projects; the major problems science hopes to solve; and the rewards of a career in scientific research. For Doherty, science plays an important role in improving the world, and he argues that scientists need to do a better job of making their work more accessible to the public. He concludes with tips on how to win a Nobel Prize, including advice on being persistent, generous, and culturally aware. </DIV>

The biomedical revolution - what we may become : the eighth lecture in the Kenneth Myer series organised by the Friends of the National Library of Australia and held on Aug. 8, 2001 in the Library's Theatrette by Peter Doherty ( Recording )
1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Doherty discusses 20th century attempts at eugenics to breed out genetic abnormalities increasingly aided by medical research; this raises the moral issue how a society might use genetic profiles of individuals such as seeking a genetically compatible spouse, or if insurance companies would insist on such information before agreeing to a policy; genetic analysis of a cancer may lead to the development of very specific-acting drugs, in some cases economically feasible despite the great cost but, for instance, unlikely to be cost-effective for children; how medical care is not cost-effective for different sectors of the community requiring difficult political choices as to what treatments should be funded; longevity is not likely to increase significantly under current application of genomics; while some genetic manipulation of the fertilised embryo is possible such as modifying bone marrow stem cells, human cloning is accompanied by such a high error rate that it is unlikely to pass any ethics committee
The map of life Professor Peter Doherty at the National Library of Australia ( Recording )
1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The revolution in biology confirms that all living things - worms, giraffes, us, trees - share a common origin. So be respectful when you bite into that potato - you're eating a distant relative. "We're already seeing relationships that we didn't recognise before, for instance the hippo and the whale are very close. Species are being re-defined and a great deal of biology will be rewritten." What will it all mean for the human animal?
