Malaysian scientist does nation proud


KUALA LUMPUR: A Malaysian researcher has become the first scientist from a developing country to receive the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Award.

“I was speechless. I never expected to be selected because previous recipients were all very established scientists,” said Prof Dr Ng Kwan Hoong (pic) of the prestigious award that was named after Marie Curie, the only person to win a Nobel Prize in two different sciences (physics in 1903 and chemistry in 1911.)
