UNEC hosts conference dedicated to Nobel Prize winner Aziz Sancar

Azerbaijan State University of Economics (UNEC) has hosted a conference titled “Aziz Sancar: Life story of a man who sacrificed himself in the name of science” which was dedicated to 2015 Nobel Prize winner in Chemistry, Professor of the U.S’s University of North Carolina Aziz Sancar.

A film about the outstanding scientist’s life and activities was screened at the conference, APA reports.

 

UNEC rector, Professor Adalat Muradov said that though the university welcomed many Nobel Prize winners so far, Sancar is quite different: “Aziz Sancar has been invited to Azerbaijan not as a chemist, but a Turkish scientist. The personality of Aziz Sancar is very dear to us as the first Turkish winner of Nobel prize in science.”

 

The rector said that Sancar has been invited to Azerbaijan at the invitation of Education Minister Mikayil Jabbarov.

 

Aziz Sancar addressed scientific community of Azerbaijan. The professor said that there were neither competition nor cooperation among him and other Nobel Prize-winning scientists. 
 
Sancar noted that other prominent scientists not winning the Nobel Prize also made contributions to humanity. The booklet titled “Aziz Sancar’s Nobel Biography” translated into Azerbaijan was presented. Muradov said that the booklet is a perfect work in terms of form and content. 
 
Then Sancar answered the questions. 
 
The rector said that “Aziz Sancar’s award” will be created in UNEC in the next academic year, as well as a laboratory named after Aziz Sancar will be established.
 
UNEC’s title “Honored Doctor” was presented to Aziz Sancar.
