NEW YORK (AP) — Three researchers won a Nobel Prize on Wednesday for developing a microscope technique that lets scientists see exquisite details of the molecules that drive life — basically providing a front-row seat to study these tiny performers in their biological dance.
The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences said molecules can be captured down to the level of their atoms, and snapshots can catch them in mid-movement. That can help reveal how they interact.
SAN DIEGO (AP) — Roger Tsien, a University of California, San Diego professor who shared the 2008 Nobel Prize in chemistry for helping develop fluorescent markers that could tag cancer cells or track the advance of Alzheimer's disease in the brain, has died. He was 64.
Tsien died on Aug. 24 in Eugene, Oregon, according to a statement Wednesday from the university.
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Three researchers whose work with cell proteins has implications for Alzheimer's disease, cancer and other degenerative illnesses will share one of the largest awards in medicine and science in the U.S., officials at a New York hospital said Wednesday.
The $500,000 Albany Medical Center Prize in Medicine and Biomedical Research will be shared by F. Ulrich Hartl of the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry in Martinsried, Germany; Arthur Horwich of the...
