Neuron Prizes 2020
We are living in the time of scientists. And scientists are the right persons to be heard of right now. Neuron Prizes 2020 were special and the ceremony was fully affected by COVIDpandemic situation. We awarded 2 excellent Czech scientists, Tomáš Cihlář for his innovative drug Remdesivir and Karel Raška, in memoriam for his lifelong success in fighting viruses.
In cooperation with the Czech public television - ČT2 we were able to reach hundreds of thousands of viewers. Part of the official ceremony was also a play The Elegance of the Molecule. Dejvické theatre and its amazing actors and actresses consumed the audience into the story of Three molecules, three men with a vision and the courage to take risks.
