Energizing & an honor to speak at ALS Association Greater New York Chapter fundraiser WalktoDefeatALS, pictured here with Pat Quinn originator of the Ice Bucket Challenge--we will use the funds from generous spirits to sequence over 1,000 whole genomes to deeply study ALS genetics this year

Feeling that global sense of idealism? Check out Ustream, a live 24/7 view from the International Space Station

I find myself truly inspired once again by music.  Here, David Oistrakh, 1972, master violinist in every way; watch here the special bond between student & teacher (you don't have to speak Russian/German to understand everything here)... http://youtu.be/aPjR94QN8-Y?list=RDAtkk3PX50mc

Great discussion by Nathan Pearson.  Another point (discussion around 16:00) re: latin vs. germanic words in communication--scientists (and I'm really pointing at MD's) can have a tendency to hide behind jargon.  For MD's this may have been so they could talk about a patient at the bedside without the patient's understanding (something OK if with patient consent, but otherwise at risk of being demeaning).  For scientists communicating with scientists, there may be more precision, but it risks hiding ignorance behind jargon if not necessary & appropriate.

Story
Tagline
Humanist working on clinically relevant molecular biology, neuroscience and human genomics at New York Genome Center and Rockefeller University
Introduction
Informal:  
I'm a physician-scientist interested in RNA, HITS-CLIP, Neurologic disease, Neuro-oncology, 
high throughput genomics, 
science & politics, cello, my wife, my kids, triathlon training

Formal: 
Robert B. Darnell, M.D., Ph.D., is the Robert and Harriet Heilbrunn Professor of Cancer Biology at Rockefeller University in New York City and an Investigator of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. In November 2012 he was named President and Scientific Director of the NY Genome Center. His is also an active physician, both at the Rockefeller University Hospital, where he is Senior Physician, and at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in NY, where he is an adjunct Attending Neuro-Oncologist. 

Dr. Darnell's career began as a leading expert in the study of paraneoplastic neurologic syndromes, rare disorders triggered by an immune system response to common cancers. His patient-oriented studies led him to discover that neurons have unique mechanisms governing the regulation of RNA, the transcribed copies of our genes.  His laboratory went on to pioneer the development of HITS-CLIP, a method using next-generation genomics to study RNA regulation in intact cells and tissues, now a gold standard being widely applied in neurobiology, cancer biology, immunology, virology, and as a tool to explore the “dark matter” of the human genome.  In 2010, Dr. Darnell was elected member of the National Academy of Medicine (formerly IOM), member of the Association of American Physicians and Fellow of the AAAS. Dr. Darnell served on the Board of Scientific Councilors of the Jackson Laboratory and the NINDS Advisory Council, and among numerous awards, in 2012 received an NIH Directors Transformative Research Award.  In 2014 Dr. Darnell was elected a Member of the National Academy of Sciences.  

Since 2012 he has served as President of NYGC while maintaining his positions as Professor and Senior Physician at The Rockefeller University and Investigator of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute.
