Members of the Nobel Committee for Chemistry Center, left to right Chair Professor of Theoretical Chemistry Johan Aqvist and Secretary General of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences Hans Ellegren listen to Professor in Chemistry Olof Ramstrom at the press conference to announce the winners of the 2022 Nobel Prize in Chemistry at the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences in Stockholm on October 5, 2022. This year's Prize in Chemistry deals with not overcomplicating matters, instead working with what is simple and simple. Even by taking a simple route, functional molecules can be built, said Johan Aqvist, chair of the Nobel Committee for Chemistry.
I can barely breathe! Bertozzi said she had a reaction to her onsite telephone interview. She said a shock is an understatement after hearing the news in the middle of the night. ALSO READ: Nobel Prize in PhysicsPrize in Physics won by French, US, Austrian scientists.
Her bioorthogonal reactions take place without disrupting the normal chemistry of the cell, it added.
These reactions are now used to explore cells and track biological processes, according to the statement. Researchers have improved the targeting of cancer drugs by using bioorthogonal reactions, which are now being tested in clinical trials. Bertozzi, born in the United States in 1966, is a professor at Stanford University in the United States. Meldal was born in Denmark in 1954 and is professor at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark. Sharpless, born in the United States in 1941, is a professor at Scripps Research in the United States.
The prize amount for this year is 10 million Swedish kronor about US $920,000, which will be shared equally between the three laureates.
