Two Americans sharing the 2018 Alfred Nobel Memorial Prize for Economics integrated climate change and technological innovations into long-run macroeconomic analysis. William Nordhaus studied economies and the climate to develop a model that integrates theoretical and empirical information from physics, chemistry and economics to simulate how...

The 2018 Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded to inventors working with lasers. One half of the prize was awarded to Arthur Ashkin of Bell Laboratories for his development of optical tweezers that can “grip” and move tiny biological material such as viruses and bacteria. The second...

The 2018 Nobel Prize in Chemistry was shared among three researchers who manipulated evolutionary science to modify DNA and create new biomolecular technologies. Professor Frances Arnold, a CalTech biochemical engineer won half the prize for her work in enzymes. Prof Arnold began her career as an...

Researchers James Allison from the University of Texas and Tasuku Honjo of Kyoto University have won the 2018 Nobel Prize in Medicine for their work on immunotherapy in cancer treatment. Allison identified proteins that slow down or speed up immune cells that attack cancer tumours, then...

The Nobel Prize has long been held as the gold standard for excellence, but some have asked whether recent controversies require a rethink of the award. The Prize has a poor track record of recognising the contributions of women. A sexual and financial misconduct scandal...

Viewing complex three-dimensional molecules from living organisms has been an elusive challenge. This year’s Nobel Prize for Chemistry has been awarded to three researchers who developed a technique called cryo-electron microscopy. The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences said, "This method has moved biochemistry into a new...

The MIT and CalTech physicists behind the LIGO system that detected the presence of gravitational waves have been awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics. The two Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatories (LIGO) in Louisiana and Washington State have confirmed that Einstein’s theory of gravitational waves is...
