The Nobel Prize in Physiology and Medicine of 2013 were received by two American scientists and a German scientist, in recognition of their discoveries of machinery regulating vesicle traffic, a major transport system in our cells. The Nobel Committee Secretary hope that further study can promote the development of drugs and help treat epilepsy, diabetes and other metabolic disorders.
Three of the laureates focus on the research of how cells delivery hormones, enzymes and other critical substances accurately and timely. Their research achievements in the field of cytology may help to treat a lot of diseases.
They are American scientist James E. Rothman, Randy W. Schekman and the German scientist Thomas C. Sudhof. Rothman aged 62, is a professor at Yale University; Schekman, a 64-year-old man, works at the University of California, Berkeley; Sudhof, aged 57, joined Stanford University in 2008.
The outstanding contributions of the three Nobel laureates show us all the details of a cell’s basic physiological processes. We can not only appreciate the beauty of science, but also make the disease secrets crystal clear gradually via these findings.
The Nobel Committee said their research outcomes helped researchers understand a variety of diseases better, including diabetes and immune system disorders. They hope that their studies can continue to promote the development of the human metabolic disease treatment.
Some of the Noble laureates are expected to be presented at ReLife International Medical Center and share their research outcomes with the medical team by the end of March.
