On 14 March 2000, John Foxton Ross Kerr, Emeritus Professor of Pathology at the University of Queensland, received the Paul Ehrlich and Ludwig Darmstaedter Prize for his description of apoptosis, a form of cell death. The prize, which he shared with Boston biologist Robert Horvitz, is considered to be one of the most prestigious European awards in science, second only to the Nobel Prize.
