New podcast: Allan Jacobson helps make sense out of nonsense mutations in genes

Date Posted: Tuesday, January 22, 2019

It was 1973 when Allan Jacobson, PhD, started his career at UMass Medical School and while the campus has dramatically transformed since then, the scientists’ zeal for discovery is still driving research, he said.

“We were taking a chance thinking that this could be a place that could be great, and we all pitched in and did it right. And, that’s what happened,” said Dr. Jacobson in a new Voices of UMassMed podcast. “We’ve done a great job building a faculty that feels like family.”
