Storyboard Text

  • Hello, my name is Kary Mullis and I am a scientist. More specifically a biochemist.
  •  One of my biggest accomplishments was winning the Nobel Prize in chemistry in 1993 for my role in the improvement of the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) technique.
  • I am known for the development of the polymerase chain reaction (PCR), a technique that is used in molecular biology to amplify a single copy (or a few copies) of a piece of DNA. This is a very important technique used in medical and biological research labs for a variety of reasons!
  • My family had a farming background. I loved to sit and observe the animals and other living organisms.
  • I went to so many places for college. I got my bachelors of science in chemistry and I got my PhD and began to lecture in Biochemistry. I also became a postdoctoral fellow in pediatric cardiology. Then, two years later I began to work in pharmasuedical chemistry.
