2006 Nobel Prize in Medicine
The Nobel Foundation awarded the 2006 prize in Physiology and Medicine to two American researchers, Dr. Andrew Z. Fire, of MIT, and Dr. Craig C. Mello, of Harvard, who discovered "a fundamental mechanism for controlling the flow of genetic information." The Nobel Foundation explains that their discovery is expected to lead to novel therapies for viral infections, among other uses.
