The pre­sen­ta­tion cer­e­mony for this year’s Shaw Prize brought to­gether nu­mer­ous global lu­mi­nar­ies from the fields of as­tron­omy, life sci­ence and medicine, and math­e­mat­i­cal sciences. Each year, the prize hon­ours in­di­vid­u­als who have re­cently achieved sig­nif­i­cant break­throughs in aca­demic and sci­en­tific re­search or ap­pli­ca­tions, and whose work has re­sulted in a pos­i­tive and pro­found im­pact on mankind. Among this year’s award re­cip­i­ents were bio­chemist Peter Wal­ter, physi­cist Shaun Cole and math­e­ma­ti­cian George Lusztig.
