Robert Bazell: A Conversation

Robert Bazell is NBC News' Chief Science and Health Correspondent. His reports appear on "NBC Nightly News, with Brian Williams" "Today" and "Dateline NBC."

During his career with NBC News, which has spanned more than three decades, Bazell has reported on a wide range of subjects in the areas of science, technology and medicine throughout the United States and around the world.

Bazell has received hundreds of awards for his reports, including four Emmys, the Alfred I. DuPont Columbia Award, the Edward R. Murrow Award and a Gracie Award. He has also received a George Foster Peabody Award, for which he was recognized for exemplifying "the best reporting on science and medicine. From transmission of the AIDS virus to innovations in cancer treatment, from the perceived dangers of cellular phones to alternative modes of health care, Mr. Bazell brings intelligence, understanding and reportorial excellence to the task. Robert Bazell is an outstanding television reporter who recognizes when to speak, when to listen and when to tell."

His extensive tracking of the AIDS epidemic, which began in 1982 when there were only a handful of cases, has included reports from all parts of the United States, Africa, Europe, the Caribbean and South America, and earned wide acclaim as did his reports on medical care during the Iraq war, Hurricane Katrina and the Haitian Earthquake.

Bazell is a 1967 Phi Beta Kappa graduate of the University of California at Berkeley, with a B.A. in biochemistry. He did graduate work in biology at the University of Sussex, England, in 1969, and was awarded a doctoral candidate degree in immunology at Berkeley. Bazell's book, "HER-2: The Making of Herceptin, a Revolutionary Treatment for Breast Cancer" (Random House, October 1998) was made into a 2008 Lifetime movie called "Living Proof" starring Harry Connick, Jr. and produced by Bernadette Peters.

Bazell began his journalism career in 1971 as a writer for the News and Comment section of Science Magazine. A year later, he moved to The New York Post as a reporter. In 1976, before he joined NBC News, he was briefly a reporter with WNBC-TV, the NBC Television Station in New York.

Bazell lives in New York with his wife Margot Weinshel. He has three children Rebecca, Josh and Stephanie.
