Elizabeth Blackburn, who was awarded the 2009 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine, shares a lighter moment with Mike during the 2011 Global Conference's opening panel about The Promise of Medical Science. Dr. Blackburn said she believes increased knowledge of genomics and biology research means we are "almost at a tipping point" that will allow physicians and scientists to intercept cancers at much earlier stages. She also suggested that medical science can be accelerated if we "pay teachers like lawyers." Other panelists included Nobel laureate James Watson, Susan Desmond-Hellmann, Chancellor of the University of California, San Francisco, and Amgen Chief Medical Officer Sean Harper.
