This episode, we talk to Dr. Thomas Kornberg, professor of biochemistry and biophysics in the Cardiovascular Research Institute at the University of California, San Francisco. He obtained his BA and PhD degrees at Columbia University in New York. 

His work on cellular communication mechanisms led to the discovery of cytonemes, the thin cellular projections that are specialized for the exchange of signaling proteins between cells - and might just hold the key to significant medical breakthroughs!
