Hopefully they will change/tell "history" the true story and in any Award history. Won't change much but at least bring out the truth.
I hope they also recognize those who sided with Waksman and ask them to explain again publicly how they made that decision.
Too bad that the academic world turned against Schatz and the Noble prize committee also did the same. Now, at least the Noble Prize committee has an obligation to award the true discoverer of the drug for TB. The monies should go to his heirs.
Sad that he got shunned and his work was not recognized by his collegues and I think he had to take work outside of the academic world!
Now you know how careers can be ruined by one's superior!
I read Dr. Schatz background and he who taught at Temple University until his retirement in 1981. Just wanted to correct my mistake!
