Miroslav Radman, my hero
Miroslav Radman (born April 30, 1944 in Split) is a prominent Croatian biologist and a member of the French Academy of Sciences. Radman's specialty is DNA repair; in 1974 he discovered the SOS response. He is now a professor of cellular biology at the Faculté de Médecine - Necker, Université Paris V, Paris, France.
- Year 2006. with three Croatian scientists (Ksenija Zahradka, Dea Slade, and Mirjana Petranović) discovered a process that enables the bacterium Deinococcus radiodurans self-healing.
- 13th March 2008. The research team led by Miroslav Radman prove the sex life of bacteria (op. I hope they wont make xxx movie about it any time soon lol). The paper is published as an original work of doctoral scientists Ana Babic in the journal Science.
- His work on DNA has enabled him to discover the so-called secret of immortality, the holy grail.
This last sentence prompted me to choose Dr. Miroslav Radman my hero, if that is indeed possible, and if he discovered the secret of self-healing cells, many human lives will be saved and many diseases cured.
Hopefully an invention like that would not be reserved only "for the rich",
but that will be available to all people for the benefit of all humanity and extending human race.
