I’m Randy Schekman, co-recipient of the 2013 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine, awarded this past Tuesday. Ask me anything.
My short bio: I have been jointly awarded the Nobel Prize for Medicine for my part in revealing the machinery that regulates the transport and secretion of proteins in human cells.
Also this week, I declared in The Guardian my decision to no longer publish in luxury journals like Cell, Nature, or Science. http://www.reddit.com/search?q=schekman
I’m Editor-in-chief of the open-access journal eLife, which publishes the most important advances in the life and biomedical sciences -- as judged by our board of working scientists. http://www.elifesciences.org/ama-signup/
I’ve been professor of molecular and cell biology at the University of California at Berkeley since 1976 and strongly believe in the importance of public research universities and public education.
So Reddit, ask me anything! PS Only around for 1hr, still in Stockholm!
