Keynote speaker:
Mario Capecchi, PhD
2007 Nobel Laureate Recipient
University of Utah School of Medicine
Distinguished Professor & Co-Chair of Department of Human Genetics

After the Nazis tore his family apart and left him homeless and alone at age 4, Mario Capecchi began an epic lifetime journey from sickly street vagrant to Nobel Laureate. In this engaging talk, one of the world's most prominent molecular geneticists weaves his personal tale of survival into the story of how he helped pioneer a technique that has revolutionized the study of human diseases.
