3 US-Based Scientists Share Nobel Chemistry Prize

Published onsdag 8 oktober 2008 kl 11.44

This year’s Nobel Prize for Chemistry has been jointly awarded to Professor Osamu Shimomura from the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, Massachusetts,  Professor Martin Chalfie from Columbia University, New York, and Professor Roger Tsien from the University of California, San Diego, all in the USA.

They’ve been honored for discovering the green fluorescent protein first observed in jellyfish.

The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences says this has become one of the most important tools used in bioscience today, so researchers can attach the glowing protein and watch processes that were previously invisible.
