In this 2002 interview, Lasker Award and Nobel Prize winner Eric Kandel speaks with the then-newly minted Lasker Laureate James Darnell Jr. Darnell won the 2002 Albert Lasker Special Achievement Award in Medical Science for an exceptional career that opened two fields in biology—RNA processing and cytokine signaling—and for his dedication to the development of many creative scientists. Darnell shares his journey from his childhood home in rural Mississippi to training alongside preeminent scientists at the NIH, details how he made his discoveries, and talks about important findings made by other groups.
