The Nobel Prize in Chemistry for 2022 was awarded to three scientists working in the field of synthetic chemistry: Caroline Bertuzzi (Carolyn R. Bertozzi), Morten P. Meldal (Morten P. Meldal) as well as Karl Barry Sharpless (KarlBarrySharpless), thanks to "the development of 'click' chemistry and bio-orthogonal chemistry". This is Sharples' second win in chemistry - the previous one was in 2001
This is what Prof. Harmona Sorek from the Institute of Life Sciences at the Hebrew University says in an interview with the Scientist website, who is happy about the decision to award Emmanuel Charpentier and Jennifer Doudna the Wolf Prize last year. Now Charpentier is establishing the Max Planck Institute for Infectious Diseases in Berlin with high budgets, and is also contributing to corona research
Prof. Schechtman, chairman of the Wolf Foundation, also tells about the ratio of one-third of the Wolf Prize winners in the respective fields who later win Nobel Prizes, and why there are such large differences in the gaps. Crisper, like nitroglycerin, can be used for good things, but can also cause damage in the wrong hands.
