Tom Cech | On CNBC Squawk Box

Tom Cech recently appeared on the CNBC pre-market morning program Squawk Box to discuss a variety of topics including the future of biomedical research, the Colorado Initiative in Molecular Biotechnology and the 1989 Nobel Laureate’s return to the University of Colorado where he will also be resuming teaching freshman chemistry.

It is always fascinating to listen to Dr. Cech but what made this particular interview so special was the combination of not only who was answering the questions but who was asking the questions, that was CNBC Squawk Box anchor and University of Colorado, Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology graduate Joe Kernen. After Joe graduated CU MCDB he went on to graduate school at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology where his work focused on erythroleukemia cells, and led to publications in CELL, Developmental Biology, and Cold Spring Harbor Symposia on Quantitative Biology, and then focused his career on Wall St.
