The “most famous scientist in the world” visited Ron Davis and his End ME/CFS group a couple of weeks ago and gave the project a thumbs up. James Watson and Francis Crick produced arguably the single most important breakthrough in science in the past 100 years with their discovery of the structure of DNA in 1953. A couple of weeks ago James Watson spent a day with Ron Davis and his team going over their End ME/CFS project.
Over his 35 years as director, Watson built the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) into one of the world’s leading research institutions. It now contains over 50 labs and employs over 600 researchers. Eight Nobel Prize winners have done their work at CSHL.
