The Canadian cellular biologist Ralph Steinman, who died three days ago, prolonged his life thanks to the research developed dendritic cell immunotherapy to treat his pancreatic cancer, a study that earned him the 2011 Nobel Prize in Medicine.

This information was revealed by his associates at Rockefeller University in New York, who told a news conference, said to live one moment at odds with the recognition of Steinman and confirmation of his death, announced on Monday.

"His dream was to use his discovery to develop vaccines, and that dream is very close," said Michel Nussenzweig during the interview, which included the president of the New York University, Marc Tessier-Lavigne.

The president declared that the institution knew that Steinman had been elected to receive the prestigious award only on the second morning, just half an hour after receiving the news that it had died last Friday.

Tessier-Lavigne and other scholars of Rockefeller University said Steinman would have been "thrilled" to receive the award.

In Stockholm, the Nobel Foundation said it will keep the prize for Medicine for Steinman, who along with American Bruce Beutler and Jules Hoffmann presented French contributions to the study of the immune system.
