世界上,自第一所華德福學校成立,歷經94年。

今天又有一個好消息要跟大家宣布:

華德福學校的ㄧ名畢業生,得到了2013諾貝爾獎醫學或生理學獎,是來自德國的
科學家湯瑪斯·祖德霍夫Thomas C. Südhof

北美華德福學校協會的主席,為此感到非常開心,他說:

This week we learned the wonderful news that Waldorf alum Thomas Sudhof, MD, professor of molecular and cellular physiology at the Stanford University School of Medicine, won the 2013 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine. He is a graduate of the Waldorf School in Hanover, Germany.
 
Waldorf <wbr>graduate <wbr>wins <wbr>the <wbr>2013 <wbr>Nobel <wbr>Prize <wbr>in <wbr>PhysiologyHis advice for students? "More than anything, follow your passions. What are you actually interested in? What work satisfies you? I have met so many unhappy rich people. I think that, in order for a person to reach his or her potential and to be happy is to work in an area that they enjoy, can support and feel good about. I have given the same advice to my adult children."
 
Südhof has spent the past 30 years prying loose the secrets of the synapse, the junction where information, in the form of chemical messengers called neurotransmitters, is passed from one neuron to another. "The firing patterns of our synapses underwrite our consciousness, emotions and behavior. The simple act of taking a step forward, experiencing a fleeting twinge of regret, recalling an incident from the morning commute or tasting a doughnut requires millions of simultaneous and precise synaptic firing events throughout the brain and peripheral nervous system." [From the press release from Stanford University.] 
Congratulations, Thomas Sudhof!
