2 Americans, German Win Nobel Prize in Medicine
Two Americans, James Rothman and Randy Schekman, and German researcher Thomas Suedhof won the 2013 Nobel Prize in medicine on Monday, October 7th for their work on hormones, enzymes and other key substances transported within cells. The Nobel committee said the researchers' work on "vesicle traffic," or the cellular transport system, aided scientists in their understanding of how "cargo is delivered to the right place at the right time" inside cells. Schekman said his response after being awakened by the chairman of the prize committee at 1 a.m. was, "'Oh my God,' and that was that."
