Hugh Herr

Princess of Asturias Award for Technical & Scientific Research 2016

Statement by Hugh Herr on being bestowed with the 2016 Princess of Asturias Award for Technical and Scientific Research

“I am deeply moved to receive the Princess of Asturias Award for Technical and Scientific Research. As a consequence of a mountain climbing accident, my legs were amputated in 1982 due to tissue damage from frostbite. Since that time, I have made it my life’s work to advance the basic science and technology to enable the bionic repair of humans. It is my hope that this recognition will shed light on the global mission to end human disability in the 21st Century through continued advancements in bionics.”
