Kary Mullis is the inventor of the now widely used PCR tests we see on every street corner, to help keep this pandemic rolling on.
Mullis was born in Lenoir, North Carolina, in 1944. He received a bachelor’s degree in chemistry from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 1966 and a PhD in biochemistry from the University of California, Berkeley, in 1972.
Mullis once said in an interview that in regards to the PCR tests:
“With a PCR, if you do it well you can find almost anything in anyone”
