The world’s most famous wine, the Nobel Laureate Laureate for Chemistry, has been awarded a fourth and final Nobel Peace Prize, which she said would allow her to “make a difference”.
Nobel Laureate Daniel Kahan received the award on Tuesday in Stockholm, where the event is held annually.
He had previously won the first two prizes, the Chemistry Nobel in 1960 and the Peace Prize in 1974.
His third prize, the Fields Medal, is awarded annually to scientists who have made a major contribution to science.
The prize ceremony will be held in Stockholm on Thursday.
A total of 2,521 people, including Nobel Laureates and government officials, are being nominated to win, with more than 50,000 applications submitted for the Nobel.
In the previous awards, more than 5,000 scientists and scientists’ families were nominated.
“I am very honoured to receive this third Peace Prize,” Mr Kahan said.
“I feel honoured to be able to help shape the future of our science and I hope that we can continue this legacy.”
“It is my great privilege to have won a prize like this, which will help me to do my part to make a difference in the world.”
Mr Kahan won his third Nobel Peace prize in 2011, after he discovered that a particular compound he was working on, boron nitride, could prevent cancer.
“It has a very positive impact on the immune system,” he said.
He said he had no plans to make any other discoveries, and that he was not expecting any further awards.
“My aim now is to keep doing what I am doing, because this is a gift that can’t be taken away from me,” he told reporters.
The Nobel Committee, which reviews the nominees for each of the four awards, will announce the winners on Friday.
