#Peter Raymond Grant
In this installment of the series, we had the pleasure of interviewing Dr. Peter Raymond Grant and Dr. Barbara Rosemary Grant, the 2009 Kyoto Prize laureates in the Basic Science category.
On February 6, the BBVA Foundation in Spain announced “Frontiers of Knowledge Award” went to Dr. Peter Grant and Dr. Rosemary Grant, Evolutionary Biologists of Princeton University in the United States.
“The Royal Medal goes to Dr. Peter Grant and Dr. Rosemary Grant at Princeton University in the United States,” the Royal Society of London announced on July 18, 2017. They were recognized “for the research on the ecology and evolution of Darwin’s finches on the Galápagos, demonstrating that natural selection occurs frequently and that evolution is rapid as a result.” It is the first time for the husband-and-wife team to receive the Royal Medal in its long history.
