Eric Lander—Human Genome Project

Professor Eric Lander, founding director of the Broad Institute, was a world leader of the international Human Genome Project (HGP), which launched a new era in biomedicine. With the successful completion of HGP in 2003, Lander and the Broad Institute are using the project's findings to explore the molecular mechanisms underlying the basis of human disease. This video is excerpted from Lander's lecture on Feb. 16, 2001, which presented an overview of the Human Genome Project and can be viewed in its entirety at MIT World. This year, in February 2011, the journal Nature celebrated the 10 year anniversary of the first draft of the human genome sequence.
