He is a Nobel Prize-winning medical researcher, but before studying medicine, Harold Varmus earned a post-graduate degree in early English at Harvard. So it was not surprising when he quoted Beowulf in his acceptance speech. In 2008, Dr. Varmus was awarded the Henry G. Friesen International Prize in Health Research. He tells IDEAS host Paul Kennedy what it means to be top scientific advisor for Presidents Clinton and Obama.
Winding your way through DNA. Tape 1 ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 6 libraries worldwide
Focuses on the discoveries that started the revolution in DNA technology, including a personal story of the early days of DNA research and how scientists learned to read the language of DNA.
Winding your way through DNA ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 6 libraries worldwide
(Producer) Tapes 1 and 2 answer the following questions: How did it all begin? What were the benchmark discoveries that started the revolution in DNA technology? How did those discoveries change the way scientists viewed the role of DNA? Whatdo "chromosome," "gene," "genetic engineering," and "DNA" really mean? Tapes 3 and 4 address the questions: How can DNA technology predict future illnesses and produce new medical therapies? What effects will this technology have on health care aroundthe globe? How is DNA technology being used to increase our food supply? Tapes 5 and 6 explores the questions: What are the ethics of using DNA technology to disclose our medical futures? Should the government regulate this new technology? Could DNAtechnology get out of control? Will DNA evidence be used to decide court cases? How is technology affecting society in general and each of us as individuals?

Mammary-Specific Gene Transfer for Modeling Breast Cancer ( Book )
2 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
In order to develop a mouse model system that allows for rapid assessment of genetic lesions involved in breast tumor development, we are adapting a somatic gene transfer system based on avian leukosis virus A (ALV-A) expression vectors and TVA, the receptor for ALV-A. Transgenic mice have been generated that target tv-alpha to the mammary epithelial cells using MMTV and WAP promoters. Mammary epithelial cells from these transgenic mice are susceptible to infection both in vivo and in vitro. Low-grade carcinomas can be induced to progress to higher-grade tumors using viruses that express potent oncogenes. The mouse lines generated will be valuable research tools for gene delivery using the ALV-TVA system. PTEN is a tumor suppressor gene mutated in many neoplasias including breast cancer. It encodes a lipid phosphatase that prevents the activation of Akt. Breeding of a Pten mutant allele into female mice predisposed to mammary oncogenesis, due to transgenic expression of MMTV-Wnt-1, led to more rapid formation of mammary tumors. This finding confirmed the role of Pten in breast tumorigenesis.
