Nobel Prize winner de Duve dies at 95

Written By Joseph Y. Musa on Monday, May 06, 2013 | 5/06/2013 09:12:00 pm


A BELGIAN university says that biochemist Christian de Duve, who won the Nobel Prize in
physiology or medicine in 1974, has died in an act of euthanasia. He was 95.
His university, UCL in Louvain-la-Neuve, confirmed it was a case of euthanasia but did not disclose the method.
De Duve shared the Nobel Prize with two other scientists for their work and discoveries on the structural and functional organisation of the cell.
One month before his death last Saturday, he had taken the decision to end his life through euthanasia and had granted a big interview to the daily Le Soir to be published after his death.
He said he had been getting weaker and decided to plan, as he put it, "my own disappearance."
