 หัวข้อข่าว : American, German receive 2005 Prince Mahidol Award

รายละเอียด : Published on January 27, 2006 His Majesty the King last night honoured two scientists with the Prince Mahidol Award for their outstanding contributions to medicine and public health in a ceremony at the Ananda Samakhom Throne Hall. Prof Eugene Goldwasser, of the University of Chicago, and Prof Harald zur Hausen, of the German Cancer Research Centre in Heidelberg, Germany, were chosen out of 46 nominees from 23 countries to receive the prestigious award. In his televised address, His Majesty the King recognised the importance of their work and the difficulties they each faced. “Those who persevere to carry out research and finally achieve success must have complete proficiency, unwavering determination and great compassion for their fellow human beings,” His Majesty said. “I wish to say to each of you that your good deeds are excellent examples to inspire others to be willing to sacrifice themselves both physically and mentally as well as their private well-being to the promotion of the welfare and progress of all mankind.” Goldwasser, a professor of biochemistry and molecular biology, received the award in the field of medicine for his work on the hormone erythropoietin, which led to the development of a successful therapy for severe anaemia in kidney failure and cancer patients. “It’s a very unexpected honour, but it’s a great honour and I’m pleased about it,” Prof Goldwasser said. Prof zur Hausen was recognised with the award for public health for his discovery of the role human papilloma viruses (HPV) play in causing cervical cancer. As a result of his research, which took more than 30 years, a new vaccine for the prevention of this devastating disease is now in clinical trials. “If you work in this field, you have to be as persistent as the viruses are,” Prof zur Hausen explained. The awardees received a medal, certificate and US$50,000 (Bt2 million). Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn, president of the Prince Mahidol Award Foundation, hosted a banquet for the awardees on behalf of His Majesty the King after the ceremony. The Prince Mahidol Award was initiated in 1992 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the birth of His Majesty the King’s father, Prince Mahidol. Chris Vedelago The Nation
