The winners of this years Nobel Prize in Chemistry have been announced, and the prize will be shared equally between Venkatraman Ramakrishnan, Thomas Steitz, and Ada Yonath for studies of the structure and function of the ribosome. The information encoded in DNA is decoded to produce functional proteins in two stages: transcription (DNA -> RNA) and translation (RNA -> protein). This prize was awarded for the work that described this second stage in atomic detail, and you can read more about it in the scientific background document released with the prize announcement. This prize complements the 2006 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, which was awarded for atomic-resolution work on transcription (although the transcription prize was specifically for work on eukaryotes, and the work recognized by the translation prize was carried out on prokaryotes)..

The Templeton Prize is a joint activity of the three philanthropies established by Sir John Templeton. Originated in 1972, the Templeton Prize was his first major philanthropic venture. He created the Templeton Prize because he wanted to recognize discoveries that yielded new insights about religion especially through science, and he set the award amount above that of the Nobel Prizes in order to recognize the importance of progress in religion. His understanding of progress in religion evolved during his lifetime and is shown in the variety among the 49 Laureates who have received the Prize. Winners have come from all major faiths and dozens of countries and have included Nobel Prize winners, philosophers, theoretical physicists, and one canonized saint.. Throughout the decades, the Prize always reflected Sir Johns core conviction that there is a deeper level of reality that can be accessed through rigorous research, especially in the sciences. For the first few decades of the Prize, HRH ...

According to the Academy, these disciplines are chosen so as to complement those for which the Nobel Prizes are awarded.[2] Only one award is given each year, according to a rotating scheme - astronomy and mathematics; then geosciences; then biosciences.[2] A Crafoord Prize in polyarthritis is only awarded when a special committee decides that substantial progress in the field has been made.[2] The recipient of the Crafoord Prize is announced each year in mid-January; on Crafoord Day in April, the prize is presented by the King of Sweden, who also presents the Nobel Prizes at the ceremony in December.[2][3] The prize money, which as of 2015[update] is 6,000,000 kr (or US$700,000), is intended to fund further research by the laureate.. The inaugural laureates, Vladimir Arnold and Louis Nirenberg, were cited by the Academy for their work in the field of non-linear differential equations. The first woman to be awarded the prize was astronomer Andrea Ghez in 2012.. ...
The fact that the number of winners is bounded from above isnt justified just by Nobels last will. Regardless of the timing, it has a good independent reason. A rule that forbids or discourages large numbers of winners is needed to preserve the Nobel prizes scarcity. If arbitrarily large groups of winners were possible, the committee would surely be tempted to choose the politically correct solution and give the Nobel prize pretty much to everyone. Such a Nobel prize inflation would make the prize more or less worthless rather quickly. Note that if the prize were divided between members of ATLAS and CMS, each of them would get something like a few dollars. Thats not what a prestigious prize was created for. Thats what they can get from their salary for 30 minutes. And be sure that the fame per person would drop accordingly - pretty much proportionally. Just think what it does to the Peace Nobel Prize when every piece of stinky excrement shaped e.g. as Michael Mann may boast that he has ...

If theres any award more coveted among basic scientists than the Lasker Award, its the Nobel Prize. The former is often said to be a gateway to the latter.. And sure enough, Stanford neuroscientist Tom Südhof, MD, who won the Lasker Award for Basic Medical Research a month ago, has won the Nobel Prize in Medicine for his trailblazing research on the workings of the synapse.. Granted, synapse isnt exactly a household word. But thats basic science for you. For an in-depth explanation of how synapses work, please check our news release on Südhofs Lasker announcement. For now Ill just say that a synapse is a junction where information (in the form of chemical messengers called neurotransmitters) is passed from one neuron to another. Your brain contains maybe 2 quadrillion of them - as many as the number of stars in 10,000 Milky Way galaxies.. Importantly, synapses misfirings, overly strong or weak connections or outright disappearance are increasingly understood to underlie most ...
Cons: This would definitely be a lifetime achievement award. Karplus did do the first MD simulation of a protein ever but that by itself wouldnt command a Nobel Prize. The other question is regarding what field exactly the prize would honor. If its specifically applications to biochemistry, then Karplus alone would probably suffice. But if the prize is for computational methods and applications in general, then others would also have to be considered, most notably Allinger but perhaps also Ken Houk who has been foremost in applying such methods to organic chemistry. Another interesting candidate is David Baker whose program Rosetta has really produced some fantastic results in predicting protein structure and folding. It even spawned a cool game. But the field is probably too new for a prize and would have to be further validated; at some point I do see a prize for biomolecular simulation ...

By Elisabeth Faure. Author Anne Applebaum has won the 2013 Cundill Prize in Historical Literature at McGill University for her book, Iron Curtain: The Crushing of Eastern Europe 1944-1956 (Allen Lane - Penguin Books / McClelland & Stewart). Applebaums account of the rise of the Iron Curtain in post-World War II Europe was chosen from amongst 116 submissions.. I know its hard to believe - even the most successful and well-reviewed history books rarely make much money for their authors, said Applebaum. It takes years and years to research and write a book like the ones that have been recognized by the Cundill Prize committee… So its wonderful that there is now a prize which focuses especially on well-written history, which is one of the most difficult and time-consuming literary forms that exists. And its wonderful that there is real prize money attached. As this years Grand Prize winner, Applebaum will walk away with $75,000 US - the worlds richest prize in historical non-fiction. The ...

This paper helps identify whether innovation prizes can be used to address intractable issues in the Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) sector and makes recommendations for potential innovation prizes across a number of problem areas. The paper relates to Stage 1 of Innovation prizes: a guide for use in a developing country context (henceforth referred to as the Guide), published alongside this paper, identifying WASH challenges for low-income households and considering where innovation prizes could best provide effective interventions. Innovation prizes can be used as an alternative to traditional grant programmes, to stimulate innovative solutions, attract new problem solvers and generate media attention around a particular set of issues. From a donors point of view, they may provide better value for money than traditional grants, as payments are directly linked to solutions being found and applied. Innovation prizes are a relatively new and untested funding mechanism in the development ...

Why has this been allowed to go on for so long?. One reason is the almost complete lack of investigative reporting.. For years I myself have been interviewed by journalists around the world who, until 2-3 years ago, had to admit that they had not read the Will but just thought - kind of… - that it was the worlds most prestigeous prize to be awarded anyone who did something good.. Thats not the case and it is not a prize for education, women, environment, human rights or do-goodism.. Another reason is that the Nobel Peace Prize is the only prize awarded by a group of people who have no particular knowledge about the subject, namely retired Norwegian MPs.. Imagine people without any background in medicine should decide who should receive that prize.. Nobel stated in his will (see above) that the Norwegian parliament should put together such a committee - but not that it should consist of parliamentarians. That also explains, to some extent, why this prize was never awarded a scholar but ...
