Ronald Evans – The Marathon Mice

Ronald Evans – A Portrait

Ronald Evans (Salk Institute) is a pioneer in the field of nuclear hormone receptors. Hereby he made a tremendous contribution to the treatment of breast cancer, prostate cancer and leukemia, as well as osteoporosis and asthma. Additionally, his studies led to the finding of a new hormone that represents one of the most import advances in understanding problems arising from excess weight and obesity and the potential treatment of type II diabetes.

This is one of ten portraits we created for the University of Groningen on the occasion of its 400th anniversary. Each of the portrayed men and women was awarded an honorary doctorate. These videos express the personality and passion of these leading international professors in diverse fields of research.
