To the late Ralph Steinman, congratulations - of sorts - are in order for his belated Nobel prize. But here's the problem, straight from the article.
He never knew his life's work had been crowned with the highest accolade science can bestow,
"Science" doesn't bestow anything. In this case, a committee "bestowed" the award on Ralph Steinman.
There's a reason this word is treated like a person, and mangled so consistently. Fight the abuse at every corner.
