- Chemistry was the most important science for Alfred Nobel’s own work. The development of his inventions as well as the industrial processes he employed were based upon chemical knowledge. Chemistry was the second prize area that Nobel mentioned in his will.
- The Nobel Prize in chemistry this year goes to the three pioneers of cryo-electron microscopy, a technique that takes accurate and detailed pictures of living things at atomic scales.
- Developed over decades by laureates Jacques Dubochet at the University of Lausanne in Switzerland, Joachim Frank at Columbia University, and Richard Henderson at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology in the United Kingdom, cryo-electron microscopy is a rare feat of science and engineering that makes things both simpler and better. Using it, scientists have made high-resolution, 3D images to target cancer drugs and demystify the Zika virus.
