3 US-Based Scientists Share Nobel Chemistry Prize

Published onsdag 8 oktober 2008 kl 11.44
Gunnar von Heijne, Gunnar Öquist och Måns Ehrenberg Present This Year's Chemistry Winners

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

They won the prestigious prize for ”the discovery and development of the green fluorescent protein, GFP”.

A rather tired Professor Tsien spoke to the world’s press just after the announcement, he’d been woken by the prize committee to be told he had won.

In Stockholm, Professor Sven Ledin from the Nobel Committee for Chemistry told Radio Sweden’s Dave Russell why the GFP discovery has been so important.
