A Heroic Voyage — Sydney Brenner's Life in Science

A*STAR Biopolis, Singapore

Sydney Brenner — the man who shared the same office with Francis Crick; made the key discovery of messenger RNA; glammed up a humble tiny transparent nematode into a powerful research tool for developmental biology. Along with John Sulston and Bob Horvitz, Brenner received the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 2002.

Brenner presented a speech at the Symposium, 2nd October 2015: view it here

Other guests whom have attended the Symposium include: Deputy Prime Minister Singapore Mr Teo Chee Hean, Prof. James Watson, Prof. Richard Roberts, etc.

One of his best quotes:

'I think it's the greatest adventure in the world to really know at a given point that you're the only person in the world that knows something new. That's a thrill that's worth it.' - Sydney Brenner's interview for SG50 book Singapore's Scientific Pioneers.
