KEARNEY, Neb. (AP) - A Nobel Prize winner will make this year's DNA Day address at the University of Nebraska at Kearney.
Mario Capecchi is a molecular geneticist who won his Nobel in 2007.
The title of his presentation is "The Making of a Scientist - An Unlikely Journey." It is scheduled to begin at 2:30 p.m. on April 25 at the UNK Health and Sports Center. The event is free and open to the public.
