Dr. Watson's visit to Dr. Pollak's Laboratory

Dr. James Watson

Curing Incurable Cancers

On October 12, 2011, Dr. James Watson, Nobel Laureate 1962, and co-discoverer of the structure of DNA, visited Dr. Pollak's lab to discuss research projects underway that interested him.  After the visit, he gave a public lecture, but unfortunately the room quickly filled to capacity and many were turned away.  We apologize for this, but we have been able to arrange for the video of his lecture at the Jewish General Hospital to be viewable on the Internet. Please note that this video is displayed below in five parts.  

Please also note that the photos from Dr. Watson's visit to the lab, the lecture, and the luncheon will soon be available.
