Casa de Campo was recently honored to welcome a very special guest – Dr. Jim Rothman – a 2013 Nobel Prize winner.
Dr. Jim Rothman won the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 2013 when affiliated with Yale. The Nobel Prize was awarded jointly to James E. Rothman, Randy W. Schekman and Thomas C. Südhof “for their discoveries of machinery regulating vesicle traffic, a major transport system in our cells”.
As a doctor and a Nobel Prize winner in medicine, during Dr. Rothman’s stay in the Casa de Campo he was invited for a visit to the Central Romana Hospital, the Centro Medico.
