Today, Brian Kobilka, MD, chair of molecular and cellular physiology at Stanford, was honored at a banquet in Stockholm for receiving the 2012 Nobel Prize in Chemistry. As we announced in October, Kobilka won the award alongside Robert Lefkowitz, MD, a Howard Hughes Medical Institute Investigator at Duke University, for his work on G-protein-coupled receptors, or GPCRs, which serve as one of the body’s main methods of conveying chemical signals.
This weekend, Kobilka and Lefkowitz delivered Nobel lectures on their research as part of the awards ceremony program. In the above video, you can watch Kobilka’s presentation, which offers an overview of his lab’s efforts to understand the structural basis of GPCRs signaling. His talk begins at the 47:39 mark.
