2008 Nobel Laureate Roger Tsien speaks on his cellular dye research

2009-08-25 by News, Sports, and Art

Dr. Roger Tsien (CHEN) won the 2008 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his work that now allows scientists to peer inside a living cell and watch the behavior of molecules in real time. He did this by developing colorful dyes that can track the movement of calcium within cells. The science is fascinating, but the really exciting part is that his discoveries hold great promise for the advancement of treatments for HIV and cancer. For example, these dyes can outline a very specific section of cancerous tissue so surgeons can make the cleanest cuts to extract all the cancer and save the patient from unnecessarily lost tissue and healing time.
