Article | October 08, 2013
Three American researchers won the Nobel Prize in medicine Monday for their insights into the traffic-control system for living cells — discoveries that the awards committee hopes will lead to future treatments for epilepsy, diabetes and immunological disorders.
The winners, who will share the $1.2 million prize, are James Rothman, 62, a cell biologist from Yale University; Randy Schekman, 64, a professor at the University of California at Berkeley; and Thomas Südhof, 57, a Stanford University neuroscience researcher.
