【時訊】俄羅斯首富決定將“DNA之父”諾貝爾獎牌物歸原主

俄羅斯首富阿利舍爾·烏斯馬諾夫透露,他上周以410萬美元的價格拍下“DNA之父”美國科學家詹姆斯·沃森的諾貝爾獎牌,並打算將獎牌物歸原主,返還給沃森先生。


Russia's richest man Alisher Usmanov has bought James Watson's Nobel Prize award for 4.1 million US Dollars from the auction last week with the intention of giving it back to Watson.


烏斯馬諾夫表示:“在我看來,一位傑出的科學家被迫出售代表他成就的獎牌是不可接受的。詹姆斯·沃森先生是人類歷史上最偉大的生物學家之一,他因發現DNA結構而得到的獎牌必須屬於他。”

Usmanov said, “In my opinion, a situation in which an outstanding scientist has to sell a medal recognizing his achievements is unacceptable. James Watson is one of the greatest biologists in the history of mankind and his award for the discovery of DNA structure must belong to him.”


烏斯馬諾夫說,他對沃森為癌症研究做出了卓越貢獻表示感謝,而他的父親就曾因癌症不治去世。


Mr. Usmanov noted he also wanted to thank Watson for his discovery, which has helped further research into cancer, the disease that killed his own father.



沃森現年86歲,因發現脫氧核糖核酸(DNA)雙螺旋結構,他于1962年與其他兩位科學家共同摘取諾貝爾醫學獎。2007年,沃森因發表“黑人智商不如白人”的言論而受到科學界的“冷遇”。

James Watson, 86, shared the 1962 Nobel Prize for uncovering the double helix structure of DNA with two other scientists. He sparked an outcry in 2007 and stunned the scientific community when he suggested that people of African descent were inherently less intelligent than white people.

自從爭議言論爆出後,沃森被迫辭去工作職務,收入驟降,陷入經濟困境,他成為第一位在世的拍賣獎牌的諾貝爾獎得獎者。


Watson later apologized but saw his income plummet, and he was forced to retire from the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory on Long Island, New York. Watson became the first living recipient of a Nobel medal to auction off the trophy.


沃森表示他希望關注獎章拍賣的公眾能給他一個機會“重返公共生活”, 他打算捐贈部分拍賣所得,以支持科學研究。


Watson expressed his hope that the auction would help him "re-enter public life" and that he would donate part of the money to the research institutions that helped his research.
