Episode 108 – A Conversation with Dr. Christian de Duve and Robert Chitester (Podcast)
In 1998, Bob Chitester sat down with the now late Dr. Christian de Duve, 1974 Nobel Prize winner in Physiology or Medicine, to talk about his background, what led him to choose his research path, and his desire to seek the truth. At some point, de Duve concluded that one of the ways to seek truth was through understanding life. However, as he tells Chitester, “You shouldn’t get away with the idea that I spent all my life thinking about the great mysteries. I forgot about the great mysteries as soon as I started doing laboratory work because then I became involved with small local mysteries…” Chitester digs deeply into de Duve’s thought process and history to learn what led him to his discoveries and, ultimately, the Nobel Prize.
