 Interview with Albert Libchaber | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 4:35

Albert Libchaber was elected to the National Academy of Sciences in 2007 for his work in physics. Libchaber has made lasting and fundamental contributions to experimental chaos dynamics and its application to biological physics, from elucidating the forces at work when a fish swims through water to defining the minimal conditions necessary for artificial life.

 Interview with John G. Hildebrand | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 5:00

John G. Hildebrand was elected to the National Academy of Sciences in 2007 for his work in animal, nutritional, and applied microbial sciences. His work on the functional organization, physiology, and development of the central olfactory system of insects has made him a pioneer in analyzing neural mechanisms underlying chemosensory control of mating behavior and insect--plant interactions. This work has application in disruption of insect mating behavior and herbivory, with practical benefit to human health and welfare.
