Date:5/31/2012

LA JOLLA, Calif., May 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Scripps Research Institute Professor Richard A. Lerner, MD, has won a prestigious international honor, the Prince of Asturias Award for Scientific and Technical Research, according to an announcement made today by the Prince of Asturias Foundation. Lerner shares the award with British biochemist Sir Gregory Winter, PhD.

Sometimes called the "Spanish Nobel Prize," the Prince of Asturias Award for Scientific and Technical Research is bestowed for findings that "represent a significant contribution to the progress and welfare of mankind." Winners receive 50,000 Euros (about $62,000), a diploma, an insignia bearing the foundation's coat of arms, and a sculpture specially created for the awards by the late Spanish artist Joan Miro.

"It is my honor to accept this prestigious award together with Sir Greg," said Lerner, "This is a wonderful recognition for the field of immunochemistry and combinatorial antibody libraries and all that they have contributed to human health."

The announcement of the jury was broadcast live from Oviedo, Spain, to more than 150 countries at noon, local time.

The foundation's statement reads, "The researchers Gregory Winter and Richard A. Lerner stand at the forefront of research on the immune system. The advances in the use of antibodies as therapeutic tools have provided new ways of preventing and treating immune disorders, degenerative diseases and different types of tumours.
