Chemistry Laureate Richard Henderson had some advice for the students he met in Stockholm: “One of the most important things as a scientist is that you have to be an optimist,” he said. “If you’re a pessimist a failed experiment will tell you that this whole idea is bad and you’ll quit. Pessimists should work in insurance broking, where you only look for the downside!” 📷

The first Nobel Prize Award Ceremony in 1901

Image of Wilhelm Röntgen receiving his Nobel Prize for the discovery of X-rays at the first Nobel Prize Award Ceremony in Stockholm, 1901. The Nobel Prizes have been presented to the Nobel Laureates at ceremonies on 10 December, the anniversary of Alfred Nobel's death, with only one exception. The 1919 Nobel Prizes were awarded on 2 June of the following year, in order to lend the festivities an atmosphere of early Swedish summer sunshine, light and greenery, instead of December’s darkness, chill and wet snow. This was not a success. No members of the Royal Family attended, due to the death of Crown Princess Margaretha. The weather was grey, rainy and cold. So, the next ceremony returned to the earlier traditional date of 10 December.

Tune in Sunday for the 2017 Nobel Prize Award Ceremonies!

Remember the Fight.

Remember the Life.

Remember the Legacy.

On this day in 2013 Nelson Mandela passed away. He not only changed South Africa’s history, he changed the world and made it a better place. He taught us all a lesson on the power of peace and reconciliation, the importance of forgiveness, and respect for the dignity of each and every human being. The greatest tribute we can offer, is to carry on his message of hope and to continue his fierce defense of the values he stood for.

Nelson Mandela won in 1991 the Félix Houphouët-Boigny Peace Prize from UNESCO and was appointed a UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador in 2005 in recognition of his extraordinary fight against apartheid in South Africa.

On the anniversary of his death, let us celebrate the life of Nelson Mandela by serving as advocates for peace and justice.

December 1, 1955
Rosa Parks, an African-American woman, refused to give up her bus seat to a white man under the laws of racial segregation in Montgomery, Alabama.
This noble and courageous act was a spark that ignited the Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and 1960s, calling for racial equality in America.
Rosa Parks stood up for her human rights and now more than ever, we must carry on her fight for justice and equality.

Would you like to know more about what @UNESCO does in this area and also to advance on human rights and to build a culture of Peace and Non-Violence in the World?

Fridtjof Nansen: scientist, polar hero, political activist, diplomat, Nobel Laureate.
Nansen first became famous for his adventures, leading the first crossing of Greenland in 1888 as well as an attempted expedition to the North Pole. However, he became a Nobel Laureate not through his work in science, but in peace.
Nansen was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1922 for humanitarian work that included repatriating prisoners of war, aiding those affected by famine and creating the ‘Nansen Passport’, which allowed stateless refugees to cross national borders.

Marshall W Nirenberg celebrating with champagne upon hearing the news of being awarded the #NobelPrize. He shared the 1968 Prize in Physiology or Medicine with Har Gobind Khorana and Robert W. Holley "for their interpretation of the genetic code and its function in protein synthesis". In the 1950s, it was established that genetic information is transferred from DNA to RNA, to protein. One sequence of three nucleotides in DNA corresponds to a certain amino acid within a protein. How could this genetic code be cracked? Marshall Nirenberg and Heinrich Matthaei produced a long RNA chain consisting of a single nucleotide. When this resulted in a long chain of a single amino acid, the first part of the genetic code "puzzle" fell into place. The remainder of the code was mapped out in the years that followed.

Terpenes are a large and varied group of substances that range from rubber and the solvent turpentine to the cholesterol in our blood. Leopold Ruzicka studied fragrances in perfumes and became interested in how they were related to other substances. In the mid-1920s he came to the conclusion that the substances were composed of the same building block, terpene isoprene.
By manipulating cholesterol molecules, Leopold Ruzicka succeeded in producing the male sex hormone androsterone and later demonstrated that testosterone also could be produced from cholesterol.

Leopold Ruzicka was born on this day 130 years ago, on 13 September 1887 in Vukovar, Austria-Hungary (now Croatia). He was awarded the 1939 Nobel Prize in Chemistry "for his work on polymethylenes and higher terpenes". Photo: Leopold Ruzicka teaching. Photographer unknown. ETH-Bibliothek Zürich, Bildarchiv.

The two Nobel Laureates Dr. George Hitchings and Dr. Gertrude Elion 1988.

George Hitchings and Gertrude Elion's research revolutionized both the development of new pharmaceuticals and the field of medicine in general. Previously, pharmaceuticals had primarily been produced from natural substances. During the 1950s, George Hitchings and Gertrude Elion developed a systematic method for producing drugs based on knowledge of biochemistry and diseases. One of the first drugs produced by the pair was for leukemia and helped many children with the disease to survive. Other drugs they created have been used to fight malaria, infections, and gout, as well as help with organ transplantations.

Gertrude B. Elion, George H. Hitchings and Sir James W. Black were jointly awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 1988 "for their discoveries of important principles for drug treatment". Photo: Wellcome Library, London. Photograph 1988.
