About half an hour ago, the press conference reveled the winners of the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine, stemcell research is being awarded. There are 3 winnners: Mario R. Capecchi (American), Martin J. Evans (English) and Oliver Smithies (American).

The Nobel Foundation's website is currently down but translated by me from Swedish, they are awarded for:

"Fundamental discoveries about embryonic stemcells and DNA re-combination with mammals"

* New York Times: "3 Win Nobel in Medicine for Stem Cell Discoveries"

The Nobel Prize in Physics - "for the discovery of Giant Magnetoresistance" Albert Fert (France) Peter Grünberg (Germany)

The Nobel Prize in Chemistry - "for his studies of chemical processes on solid surfaces" Gerhard Ertl (Germany)

The Nobel Prize in Literature - "that epicist of the female experience, who with scepticism, fire and visionary power has subjected a divided civilisation to scrutiny" - Doris Lessing (UK)

Well, I just saw the television news with this, Doris Lssing didnīt seem too impressed, judging from her reaction ;).

When will they hand out the prizes?

marie45se 10-12-2007 01:30 AM

Youīre right Doris Lessong didnīt seem to impressed by it but she has been a favorite for over 30 years and hasnīt got it. The Nobel prince award gala will be taking place the 10th of December. It will be aired here in Sweden the whole evening.


norwegianne 10-12-2007 01:32 AM

The prizes will be awarded on 10 December. The Economics, literature, physiology/medicine, physics and chemistry will be awarded in Stockholm, and followed by a gala, while the Peace Prize will be awarded in Oslo on the same day - with a concert following the next day.

norwegianne 10-12-2007 09:25 AM

The discussion about the Peace Prize have been moved to the appropriate thread in the Norwegian forum.

Please keep the discussion in this thread to the topic of the prizes awarded in Sweden.

Princess Lilian not come to nobel 2007???

robby86 12-05-2007 04:17 PM

Only five more days! I can't wait! :biggrin:
Do we know for sure if all the royal children will be in attendance this year or if they wont?

Boris 12-05-2007 04:54 PM

The Royal court website's calendar is as vague as usual: 'The Royal Family' will attend.
Meaning that we can just hope for all three children to be present. Same goes for Princess Lilian - I very much hope to see her. Last year, she attended the ceremony but was unable to go to the following banquet.

Jose 12-07-2007 12:18 PM

Princess Lilian come not to nobel party and high age. She is 92 year and court say to princess Lilian be able to not attend to nobel party. Princess Lilian is much obvious guest many time nobel party from 1976 but she is 92 year old. Princess Lilian have be many time 31 year later in Nobel Party. Court and Princess Lilian have agreed to she come not to Nobel Party at year. She Newspaper from Svenska Dagbladet day.

Her_Majesty 12-07-2007 02:41 PM

It's sad to see Lillian will stay away from all Nobel events this year. It is always a pleasure to this grand Lady.
Well, I understand it, but it's sad anyway.

Apart from this: I'm really looking forward to the Nobel Ceremonies and it's always so exiting to see the robes of the Ladies.

royalgertjan 12-08-2007 06:15 AM

and the other members of the RF will attend the award ceremony and the banquet?

Marengo 12-08-2007 06:32 AM

Does anybody know what illness Doris Lessing has? A pity that she and Princess Lilian wonīt be there!

LadyFinn 12-08-2007 02:00 PM

A great shame we won't see Princess Lilian there. Doris Lessing doesn't strike me as the type to feel put out by missing this ceremony, I think she's just happy to win the award.

GrandDuchess 12-08-2007 05:24 PM

I suppose 2006 was the last year for Princess Lilian to attend the Nobel festivities. During that year she made regular appearances all through the year but this year we've seen very little of her... So age is taking out its right and these kinds of events are now ruled out for her it seems, I doubt she'll make a comback at age 93 next year...

The rest of the Royal Family plus Princess Christina are due to attend though.

Jose 12-08-2007 06:11 PM

It is boring Princess Lilian come not attend to nobel party. She is be able to not to nobel party year. She is always guest nobel party many later and now see she is old and 92 year!

All times are GMT -4. The time now is 12:36 PM.
