The Oceanográfico hosts a conference to be given by the Nobel Prize for Medicine winner, Sydney Brenner


 

The winner of the 2002 Nobel Prize for Physiology and Medicine, Sydney Brenner, will today, Monday 20th November, present his research on genetic studies from marine to human at the Oceanográfico of the Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias.

 

At the same the book “Viure per a la ciència. Les aportaciones d’un biòleg excepcional” and the Spanish version “Mi vida en la ciencia”, published by the University of Valencia, will be presented.

Sydney Brenner, one of the most distinguished contemporary biologists, shared the Nobel Prize with John E. Sulston and H. Robert Horvitz for their discoveries on the genetic regulation of organ development and programmed cellular death. He contributed to decoding the genetic code and began a research programme on development based on a worm (Caenorhabditis elegans). In addition, he has been the director of the international project on sequencing the first genome of a vertebrate: a Japanese balloon fish (Takifugu rubripres).
