TAIPEI, Taiwan — Several lectures scheduled to be given by this year’s Tang Prize laureates had to be canceled this week because of Typhoon Megi, which hit Taiwan on Tuesday.
Most of the Tang Prize lectures were slated for Sept. 27 and 28, the two days when the typhoon was affecting Taiwan most heavily, and therefore could not be held as scheduled, the Tang Prize Foundation said.
However, that did not stop the laureates from engaging in other meaningful and fruitful interactions with local professionals and industry experts, the foundation said.
The three scientists who shared the Tang Prize in biopharmaceutical science — Emmanuelle Charpentier, Jennifer Doudna and Feng Zhang (張鋒) – met with Academia Sinica President James Liao (廖俊智) on Sept. 26, according to the foundation. [FULL STORY]
