225 years of Tar Heels: Oliver Smithies


When world-renowned geneticist Oliver Smithies got the call that he had won a Nobel Prize at age 82, his first reaction was joy. His second was to hope that the award would not change his life too much. “I rather enjoy it as it is,” he said the day his award was announced. Before his passing in January 2017, Smithies was known to say that his lab at Carolina was his home. (UNC.edu)
