Our “Researcher in Chief”

Anthony MonacoTufts President Anthony Monaco just presented the latest talk in the A Taste of Tufts series. He discussed two of his most important discoveries, the gene responsible for X-linked Duchenne and Becker muscular dystrophies and a gene specifically involved in human speech and language. Though many in the crowded classroom were transported back to their biology days, it became clear why Dr. Monaco is a pre-eminent researcher in his field. See Monday’s issue of the Tufts Daily for an article about the presentation, and check our website soon for the video!
