Peter Doherty

Listen to Peter Doherty

Professor Peter Doherty reflects on how he came to win the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1996 and how he came to science. He discusses how faith and science can co-exist, how “fiction is the most honest form of writing” and how science of conscience can save the world.

As part of the Melbourne International Arts Festival, this panel was the first of our Matter of Life and Death sessions.
