Nobel Laureate James Watson delivers a one-hour talk on "Making Science Thrive" as an invited speaker at the prestigious Academia Sinica in Taipei City, Taiwan. This speech is part of "Academia Sinica's Lecture Series", which invites top scholars from around the world.

Dr. Watson (born 1928) took his BS Biology at the University of Chicago in 1947 and PhD in Zoology at the Indiana University in 1950. Together with Dr. Francis Crick, he discovered the double-helix structure of the DNA, the basic unit of life. The two shared the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine with Dr. Maurice HF Wilkins in 1962.

This piece is part of a seven-clip video, and shows some of the rarely told stories about the discovery of the DNA, how Dr. Watson built his science career and later rebuilt the Cold Spring Harbor, one of the most prestigious research institutions in the world, and what are some of the most essentials in establishing a scientific career path as well as managing a scientific organization. He also mentioned many of his successes and frustrations, as well as personal views about science, men and women in science, socialization in science, funding strategies, among a few, and even provocative positions on religion, politics, and patents.

A very interesting hour, which I believe is a must for students, professors, science managers, and even for lobbyists, policymakers, and other non-science guys.
