Nobel Prize to 3 American scientists!

4 October 2017

Nobel Prize in physiology, medicine awarded to three Americans for discovery of ‘clock genes’!

Three Americans — Jeffrey C. Hall, Michael Rosbash and Michael W. Young — have won the 2017 Nobel Prize in physiology or medicine for their work on molecular mechanisms that control circadian systems.

Hall was born in New York, Rosbash in Kansas City, and they both worked at Brandeis University. Michael Young was born in Miami and worked at Rockefeller University.

In announcing the winner in Stockholm on Monday, the prize committee said the men elucidated how a life-form's “inner clock” can fluctuate to optimize our behavior and physiology. “Their discoveries explain how plants, animals and humans adapt their biological rhythm so that it is synchronized with the Earth's revolutions.”
