at that time, no one thought, after more than 40 years, the experimental results of the entire laboratory boiling, will become the key to open the Nobel prize in the field of natural science.
however, whether it is the Nobel prize in 2015, or just to get the state supreme science and technology award, in the eyes of Tu, are not representative of his scientific research career period "".
"on the award, Tu teacher is not too concerned about." Tu assistant Yang Lan said. She has witnessed the Tu in Tang’s traditional Chinese Medicine Academy of traditional Chinese medicine China Development Award, the Lasker clinical medicine prize, Warren? The Albert prize, the Nobel prize in physiology or Medicine Award, the state supreme science and technology award after a calm. >
