UC Berkeley biologist Randy Schekman, who graduated from the UCLA College of Letters and Science in 1971, received the 2013 Nobel Prize in physiology or medicine Dec. 10 from His Majesty King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden at the Stockholm Concert Hall. He was honored for his discoveries of how the cell organizes its molecular transport system — basic science research that holds promise for understanding neurological and immunological disorders. He’s the seventh UCLA alumnus to become a Nobel laureate. Read or watch a recent interview with Schekman about his UCLA experience and other topics.
