– The 2013 prize honors three scientists who have solved the mystery of how the cell organizes its transport system. Each cell is a factory that produces and exports molecules. These molecules are transported around the cell in small packages called vesicles. The three Nobel Laureates have discovered the molecular principles that govern how this cargo is delivered to the right place at the right time in the cell. – Nobel Prizes in Physiology or Medicine have been awarded 103 times between 1901 and 2012. In all but 38 cases they were given to more than one recipient.

Overhauling Confusing Prescription Medicine Instructions
Twelve community health centers affiliated with Alliance of Chicago will be the sites for the study. Currently, physician practices and pharmacies use different electronic records systems for writing prescriptions and translating them onto the medicine label. The study will bridge those two systems and seek to make them more consistent.

Yale’s James Rothman shares 2013 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine
The experimental approaches that he pioneeredto study these processes,such as the use of broken cells and purified cell components in artificial systems, demonstrated that a cells life could be studied with the tools of biochemistry, said Pietro de Camilli, the Eugene Higgins Professor of Cell Biology and professor of neurobiology at Yale. Jim’s discoveries and ideas have helped shape modern membrane biology, both by revealing new principles and by framing new questions. Rothman, who serves as director of the Nanobiology Institute on Yales West Campus, has received numerous honors, including the Louisa Gross Horwitz Prize, the Lasker Award for Basic Medical Research, and the Kavli Prize in Neuroscience. Rothman graduated summa cum laude from Yale College in 1971 with a degree in physics. He earned a Ph.D. in biological chemistry from Harvard Medical School in 1976.
