Sir Richard Roberts received his PhD from the University of Sheffield, taught at Harvard University, and worked as assistant director of the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratories. His work on the adenovirus-2 led to the discovery of split genes and mRNA splicing in 1977. He received the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1993. Sir Roberts is currently the Chief Scientific Officer at New England Biolabs. Human rights have remained an important theme in Sir Roberts's work, and his discussion of the case of Bulgarian nurses in Libya will touch upon many human rights issues.
