Nobel panel to announce medicine prize winner


STOCKHOLM (AP) — The winners, or winners, of the Nobel Prize in physiology or medicine will be announced Monday at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden.

Among the researchers who may be honored this year are those who were instrumental in developing the mRNA technology used in COVID-19 vaccines, saving millions of lives around the world.

Last year’s winners were David Julius and Ardem Patapoutian for their discoveries about how the human body perceives temperature and touch.

The medicine prize kicks off a week of Nobel Prize announcements. It continues on Tuesday with the physics award, on Wednesday with the chemistry award and on Thursday with the literature award. The 2022 Nobel Peace Prize will be announced on Friday and the economics prize on October 1. 10

The prizes include a cash reward of 10 million Swedish kronor (nearly $900,000) and will be awarded on December 1. 10. The money comes from a legacy left by the prize’s creator, Swedish inventor Alfred Nobel, who died in 1895.
