俄罗斯首富决定将“DNA之父”诺贝尔奖牌物归原主

俄罗斯首富阿利舍尔·乌斯马诺夫透露,他上周以410万美元的价格拍下“DNA之父”美国科学家詹姆斯·沃森的诺贝尔奖牌,并打算将奖牌物归原主,返还给沃森先生。


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.


乌斯马诺夫表示:“在我看来,一位杰出的科学家被迫出售代表他成就的奖牌是不可接受的。詹姆斯·沃森先生是人类历史上最伟大的生物学家之一,他因发现DNA结构而得到的奖牌必须属于他。”

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.”


乌斯马诺夫说,他对沃森为癌症研究做出了卓越贡献表示感谢,而他的父亲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.



沃森现年86岁,因发现脱氧核糖核酸(DNA)双螺旋结构,他于1962年与其他两位科学家共同摘取诺贝尔医学奖。2007年,沃森因发表“黑人智商不如白人”的言论而受到科学界的“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.

自从争议言论爆出后,沃森被迫辞去工作职务,收入骤降,陷入经济困境,他成为第一位在世的拍卖奖牌的诺贝尔奖得奖者。


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.


沃森表示他希望关注奖章拍卖的公众能给他一个机会“重返公共生活”, 他打算捐赠部分拍卖所得,以支持科学研究。


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.
