Local Guy Makes Good

Despite my stance as a Nobel curmudgeon, I will still stand up and salute a local scientist who did OK. Dr. Robert Lefkowitz of Duke Medical Center and Howard Hughes Medical Institute picked up the Nobel prize in chemistry today, along with Stanford’s Brian Kobilka for their work on G Protein-Coupled Receptors (GPCRs), an area of immense importance in the drug development area and also one that intersects with my own current work.

Congratulations to both men.
