Denis Noble CBE FRS FRCP FMedSci has a veritable alphabet soup after his name. It’s kind of hard to pronounce, and it always becomes a point of conversation for him. But you don’t get that many letters after your name for nothing. Noble is a longtime public intellectual, having been the first to mathematically describe the heart’s pacemaker with computer models. And then the first to explain it to everyone else.
“I think what we’re witnessing at the moment is quite a fundamental change in the way in which biology is viewed,” says Noble. He goes into further detail. Most people think of our origins as a species to be “solved,” to be “all sorted out.” In fact, the theory of evolution is just that: a theory. There is still late-breaking news in gene mutation and selection in the field. There’s still a lot to figure out.
