President Obama Meets U.S. Laureates of 2010 Kavli Prizes
Date:6/6/2011

n Observatory, Germany) for their contributions to the development of giant telescopes. The size of a telescope's primary mirror determines the light-gathering power and ability to detect and resolve the faintest and most distant objects in the universe. Nelson, Wilson and Angel pioneered the development of a new generation of large optical telescopes with innovations such as precise reflecting mirrors and more sophisticated shaping that has led to an extraordinary range of fundamental discoveries about the cosmos.

The 2010 Kavli Prize in Nanoscience was awarded to Donald M. Eigler and Nadrian C. Seeman for their development of unprecedented methods to control matter on the nanoscale. Eigler demonstrated it was possible to pick up and precisely place individual atoms at will, creating a whole field of quantum engineering.  Seeman conceived the idea of using DNA as a building material for nanoscale engineering. Inventing DNA nanotechnology, he pioneered the use of DNA as a non-biological programmable material for a countless number of devices that self-assemble, walk, compute and catalyze.  These discoveries promise breakthroughs in future applications in fields ranging from electronics to biology.

The 2010 Kavli Prize in Neuroscience was awarded to James E. Rothman, Richard H. Scheller and Thomas C. Sudhof for discovering the molecular basis of neurotransmitter release. Understanding how nerve cells communicate with one another has been a central problem in modern brain science. Over the past thirty years, Scheller, Sudhof and Rothman have used a creative multidisciplinary set of approaches to elucidate the key molecular events of neurotransmitter release. Moreover, their work has demonstrated that neurotransmitter release represents a special case of the fundamental cell biological process of membrane trafficking.

The Kavli Prize consists of a scroll, a gold medal and a cash award of one million dollars in each field, with the prizes
