It was with fantastic unhappiness that the management and personnel of the European Patent Office (EPO) learned of the death of Spanish scientist Margarita Salas. We would like to extend our sincere acknowledgements to her household.
Margarita Salas was a leader in DNA screening. She invented a much faster, easier and more trusted way to reproduce trace amounts of DNA into amounts big enough for full genomic screening. Her invention today is used commonly in oncology, forensics and archaeology. She likewise led the advancements that have since made DNA screening quickly, trustworthy and utilized in a large range of applications, bringing a revolution to the DNA amplification industry.
For her pioneering accomplishments the EPO provided Margarita Salas with 2 European Innovator Awards at a ceremony kept in Vienna in June this year. The public chose her to win the “Popular Prize” while the independent worldwide jury chosen Salas as the laureate in the “Lifetime accomplishment” category.
Throughout a career that covered five years Salas championed the role of ladies in science, investment in basic research and the emergence of molecular genetics in Spain, paving the method for additional advancements in the field. She was the first female professor in her department and the first woman to preside over the Instituto de España, the institution regrouping Spain’s 8 royal academies.
