The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for 2019 has been jointly awarded to three winners, William G. Kaelin Jr., Peter J. Ratcliffe and Gregg L. Semenza, for their work in discovering how cells sense and adapt to oxygen availability. The Nobel Assembly announced the prize at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm on October 07.
The three winners were awarded for their discoveries of "how cells sense and adapt to oxygen and availability". Their work is relevant to everything from pregnancy to cancer, as oxygen levels are vital to sustaining animal life.
