FrontRunners: Nobel Choice

Just as Aston Martin is forever associated with secret agents because of James Bond, now maybe Kawasaki will be connected with intelligence, thanks to Paul Nurse, winner of the 2001 Nobel Prize for medicine. Nurse, the director general of Britain’s Imperial Cancer Research Fund, shared the award with cancer researchers Tim Hunt and Leland Hartwell.

The winners split a $1 million prize, and Nurse, who was riding a 300cc Kawasaki motorcycle, planned to upgrade to Kawasaki’s Vulcan 500.

“I know it’s the male menopause,” he said, “but I do have my eye on a motorbike.”
