In 1989, Dr. Harold Varmus won a Nobel Prize for his cancer research. He was director of the National Institutes of Health during the Clinton administration, and now heads the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. Recently, President Obama named him to co-chair his Council of Advisers on Science and Technology. And he’s written a new book, “The Art and Politics of Science.” In this segment, Ira talks with Harold Varmus about his work, biological research, and the intersection between politics and science.
