HSLS provides access to the Henry Stewart Talks: Biomedical & Life Sciences Collection, which publishes audiovisual presentations by the world’s leading experts. The collection is organized into a series of over 1,000 regularly updated, seminar-style talks.
Henry Stewart Talks includes seminars from the three recipients of the 2011 Nobel Prize in Medicine. One half of the prize was awarded to Bruce Beutler and Jules Hoffmann “for their discoveries concerning the activation of innate immunity” and the other half to Ralph Steinman “for his discovery of the dendritic cell and its role in adaptive immunity.” Note that the following talks were originally published online in May 2009:
- Bruce Beutler, Innate immune sensing and response
- Jules Hoffmann, The anti-microbial defense of Drosophila: a paradigm for innate immunity
- Ralph Steinman, Dendritic cells: linking innate to different forms of adaptive immunity
Talks from additional Nobel Laureates are also available:
- Venki Ramakrishnan (Chemistry 2009), Structural insights into decoding of mRNA by the ribosome
- Thomas Steitz (Chemistry 2009), The structural basis for how the large ribosomal subunit catalyses peptide bond formation
- Martin Evans (Physiology or Medicine 2007), Mouse embryonic stem cells
- Roger Kornberg (Chemistry 2006), Chromatin and transcription
- Edmond Fischer (Physiology or Medicine 1992), Phosphorylase and the origin of reversible protein phosphorylation
