Nobel Prize

David Baltimore, Physiology or Medicine, 1975

“for their discoveries concerning the interaction between tumour viruses and the genetic material of the cell”

Jerome Friedman, Physics, 1990

H. Robert Horvitz, Physiology or Medicine, 2002

“for their discoveries concerning genetic regulation of organ development and programmed cell death”

Wolfgang Ketterle, Physics, 2001

 “for the achievement of Bose-Einstein condensation in dilute gases of alkali atoms, and for early fundamental studies of the properties of the condensates”

Mario J. Molina, Chemistry, 1995

 “for their work in atmospheric chemistry, particularly concerning the formation and decomposition of ozone”

Richard Schrock, Chemistry, 2005

“for the development of the metathesis method in organic synthesis”

Phillip Sharp, Physiology or Medicine, 1993

“for their discoveries of split genes”

Susan Solomon, Peace Prize, 2007

“for their efforts to build up and disseminate greater knowledge about man-made climate change, and to lay the foundations for the measures that are needed to counteract such change”

Samuel C.C. Ting, Physics, 1976

“for their pioneering work in the discovery of a heavy elementary particle of a new kind”

Susumu Tonegawa, Physiology or Medicine, 1987

“for his discovery of the genetic principle for generation of antibody diversity”

Rainer Weiss, Physics, 2017

“for decisive contributions to the LIGO detector and the observation of gravitational waves”

Frank Wilczek, Physics, 2004

Kavli Prizes

Ann Graybeil, Neuroscience, 2012

“for elucidating basic neuronal mechanisms underlying perception and decision”

Alan Guth, Astrophysics, 2014

“for pioneering the theory of cosmic inflation.”

Rainer Weiss, Astrophysics, 2016

Peter Molnar, Geosciences, 2014
Edward Lorenz, Geosciences, 1983

“for their fundamental contributions to the field of geophysical hydrodynamics which in a unique way have contributed to a deeper understanding of the large scale motions of the atmosphere and the sea”

Peter Molnar, Geosciences, 2014

“for his ground-breaking contribution to the understanding of global tectonics, in particular the deformation of continents and the structure and evolution of mountain ranges, as well as the impact of tectonic processes on ocean-atmosphere circulation and climate”

Susan Solomon, Geosciences, 2018

“for fundamental contributions to understanding the role of atmospheric trace gases in Earth’s climate system”
