Joseph Altman, Arturo Álvarez-Buylla and Giacomo Rizzolatti, Prince of Asturias Award for Technical and Scientific Research

The neuroscientists Joseph Altman, Arturo Álvarez-Buylla and Giacomo Rizzolatti have been bestowed with the 2011 Prince of Asturias Award for Technical and Scientific Research. The Jury for the Award announced its decision today in Oviedo.

These three scientists are considered worldwide leaders in neurology for having provided solid proof of the regeneration of neurons in adult brains (neurogenesis) and for the discovery of what are known as mirror neurons. Their research has opened up promising pathways to a new generation of treatments to fight neurodegenerative and brain-related disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease or Autism.

This candidature was proposed by a member of the Prince of Asturias Award Jury and was seconded, among others, by Ricardo Miledi, 1999 Prince of Asturias Laureate for Technical and Scientific Research, and Paul Greengard, 2000 Nobel Laureate in Physiology or Medicine.

The “heroes of Fukushima”, 2011 Prince of Asturias Award for Concord

2011 LaureatesThe 2011 Prince of Asturias Award for Concord has been bestowed on the “heroes of Fukushima”. The Jury for the Award announced its decision today in Oviedo.

This group of people represent the highest values of the human condition by trying to prevent, through their sacrifice, the nuclear disaster caused by the tsunami that struck Japan from multiplying its devastating effects, disregarding the grave consequences that this decision would have on their lives. Their courageous and exemplary behaviour has earned them the international epithet “heroes of Fukushima”.
