June 17, 2015 12:31


The biologist James Watson, one of the scientists who discovered the DNA double helix, stated that the humanity would have the medical cure for cancer in two years.

He said this during his visit to Moscow. “If we are lucky, then they (the pharmaceuticals for cancer - the commentary of “Lenta.Ru”) will surely become available in two years. Perhaps, we will not have to wait 15 or 10 years ... I hope so” – Watson said in an interview with the mass media. The scientist also said that he had been studying cancer for many years. “Genome is a kind of instruction for life, we have been trying to find the instruction for cancer for more than 40 years. And what about the way cancer arises, our work has been helpful” - he stated.

On June 17 Watson was given his Nobel medal back after a public lecture at the Russian Academy of Sciences, the medal was sold by him at Christie’s auction in December 2014. The scientist whose earnings and reputation were severely damaged in 2000s due to a number of racist statements intended to give the proceeds from the auction for support of research institutions and universities.

The medal was bought by the Russian businessman and philanthropist Alisher Usmanov with the intention to return it to its owner.
