Nobel Laureate Professor Martin Chalfie Presents Shipley Distinguished Lectures at Clarkson

Nobel Laureate Professor Martin Chalfie presented the two lectures of Clarkson University's 16th Annual Shipley Distinguished Lectureship on November 1 and 2. He is the William R. Kenan, Jr. Professor of Biological Sciences at Columbia University and winner of the 2008 Nobel Prize in Chemistry. Along with Roger Tsien at the University of California in San Diego and Osamu Shimomura of Woods Hole, he was awarded the prize "for the discovery and development of the green fluorescent protein (GFP)," demonstrating that it could be expressed in other organisms.  Professor Chalfie’s talks were titled “The Importance of Nontranslational Research” and “How Do I Feel: Exploring the Molecular Basis of Touch Sensitivity.” This special event was sponsored by the Shipley Family Foundation, with support from Clarkson's Center for Advanced Materials Processing (CAMP).
