Eight scientists, including Professor Lu Yuming of the Chinese University of Hong Kong, have just won the breakthrough award, the “Oscar for science” with a total prize of US $18.75 million, in recognition of a series of pioneering achievements in the fields of life science, basic physics and mathematics. The 9th < / P > < p > breakthrough award has been held to honor the world’s top scientists. The breakthrough awards are awarded with $3 million each, including the Life Science Award (up to four awards per year), the basic physics award (one award per year) and the mathematics Award (one award per year). In addition, there will be no more than three awards for new vision in physics, no more than three awards for new vision in mathematics, and no more than three new frontier awards for Mariam mirzahani each year to honor young researchers. Previously, each year, the awards were presented by superstars from the film, music, sports and technology industries at the dinner party of the awards ceremony. However, due to the global epidemic, this year’s award ceremony has been postponed to March 2021. < / P > < p > this year, a total of $18.75 million has been allocated to the breakthrough awards to support scientists who are committed to explaining the biggest and most fundamental problems. As the highest prize in the field of science, the breakthrough award has given more awards to researchers in terms of funding than other awards in the scientific community. Since 2012, the award has been awarded to nearly 3000 outstanding scientists, more than US $250 million. The purpose of the breakthrough award is to help scientific leaders focus on the world of thought without financial constraints; to enhance the influence and reputation of basic science and mathematics; to stimulate a culture of positive knowledge seeking; and to inspire a new generation of researchers to follow the example of these outstanding scientists. The winners of this year’s breakthrough awards are very diverse. For example, we have created new tools to solve the problem of protein folding, and designed new proteins (including proteins that can neutralize the new coronavirus); through high-sensitivity desktop equipment, we can study dark energy and test Einstein’s theory; we have developed a new non-invasive fetal gene screening method, which has been used by millions of parents to be around the world; we have mapped it to the level of specific brain cells We have made a map of neural pathways that control parenting behavior, revealed and expounded the cellular pathways deeply involved in hereditary Parkinson’s disease, and solved the equation describing the random process, which is applicable to both the fluctuating stock price and the movement of sugar added to tea. The amount of each breakthrough award is $3 million. < / P > < p > the six new horizons awards will be shared by 12 scientists and mathematicians in the early stages of their research careers, who have already had a significant impact in their respective fields. The prize money for each new vision award is $100000. Three new frontier awards for Mariam mirzahani were presented to three young female mathematicians – the number of winners increased from the original set of one to three due to the high attention and excellent candidates. The award was founded in 2019 and named after the late famous Iranian mathematician, fields prize winner and Stanford University Professor Mariam mirzahani. Mirzahani died in 2017. In her productive career, she has made outstanding contributions to the dynamics and geometry of Riemannian surfaces and modular spaces. Each year, a new frontier award of $50000 is awarded to female mathematicians who have earned their doctorates in the past two years. The breakthrough award was founded by Sergey Brin, Priscilla Chen, Mark Zuckerberg, Yuri Milner and Julia Milner, and Anne wochsky. The prize money is sponsored by a personal fund set up by Sergey Brin, Priscilla Chen, Mark Zuckerberg, Ma Huateng, Ma Yun, Yuri Milner and Julia Milner, and Annie worthies. The jury of the breakthrough award consists of previous winners in various fields. < / P > < p > a new technology has been developed to design proteins that have never been seen in nature, including a number of novel proteins with therapeutic potential for human diseases. < / P > < p > analyzes complex parenting behaviors at the cellular and connective levels, and studies have shown that there are neural pathways in both sexes that control the characteristic parenting behaviors of men and women. It can be used for prenatal gene testing to determine whether infants have trisomy 21 syndrome and other genetic diseases. < / P > < p > has made a series of breakthroughs in the field of complex differential geometry, including the existence theorem of kale Einstein metric and its relationship with modulus problem and singularity.
