Two Americans win Nobel Prize in Chemistry


The Nobel Prize in Chemistry has been awarded to two Americans, Robert J. Lefkowitz of Duke University and Brian K. Kobilka of Stanford University “for studies of G-protein-coupled receptors”.

The researchers who will share a prize of over €900,000 have shed light on how the cells in the human body sense their environment, which is crucial to understanding the complex network of signalling that takes place.

Since 1901, the committee has handed out the Nobel Prize in Chemistry 103 times.

It is the third of six prizes to be announced in Stockholm this month.
