Stockholm Comes to Bethesda
Dr. Harvey Alter, who shared the 2020 Nobel Prize for physiology or medicine, was honored Dec. 8 in an afternoon ceremony at Natcher Bldg. attended by Karin Olofsdotter, Sweden’s ambassador to the United States.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Nobel laureates were unable to visit Stockholm for the award ceremony traditionally held in mid-December.
Joining Alter at the presentation of his medallion and diploma were his wife Dr. Diane Dowling, members of their family as well as leadership from NIH, NIAID and the Clinical Center.
Attendees were masked, except when posing for outdoor photos taken in front of a screen.
