Nobel Prize in Medicine : Ardem Patapoutian & David Julius
This year’s Nobel Prize in Medicine and Physiology has been awarded to US scientist David Julius and Lebanon’s Ardem Patapoutian.
Their research is about our temperature and sense of touch.
These two scientists have discovered how receptors are needed in the nerves that carry the sensation of temperature and pressure.
Temperature, touch are an integral part of our daily lives.
But before their discovery, how our nervous system could sense heat and pressure from the environment was a mystery. Their discovery opened new horizons in medicine.
In the seventeenth century, the philosopher Rene Descartes envisioned the thread connecting the brain to different parts of the body.
Later discovered, the nerves carry the feeling. But how exactly do these nerves understand the temperature in the external environment, or the sensation of touch?
Pepper gives our skin a burning sensation. Capsaicin is responsible for this. Scientist David Julius proved the presence of a sensor that uses the capsaicin present in pepper, which is sensitive to temperature.
The name of this sensor or receptor is TRPV1. It gives our body a feeling of temperature.
On the other hand, scientist Ardem Pataputian discovered a new type of sensor using pressure-sensitive cells.
It can sense when we put pressure on our skin and other organs. The name of this sensor or receptor is Piezo2 It works to create a feeling of touch.
It also has a role in respiration, blood pressure, and even bone reconstruction.
Scientists David Julius and Ardem Patapoutian have done more research on these sensors, discovering their work in various other areas of the body.
Research is underway on the function of these sensors in various physiological processes in the body. Based on these, scientists are trying to find a cure for various diseases, including long-term pain.
Nobel Prize in Physics : Syukuro Manabe, Klaus Hasselmann & Giorgio Parisi
The Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded in 2021 by the American scientist Sukuro Manabe, the German scientist Klaus Hasselmann and the Italian scientist Giorgio Parisi.
Sukuro Manabe and Klaus Hasselmann have been awarded for creating a physical model of the Earth’s climate, measuring variability and reliably estimating global warming.
They both received half of this year’s Nobel Prize money.
Giorgio Parisi has received the other half of the Nobel Prize money for discovering how the chaos and fluctuations of physical systems affect each other in the atomic and planetary spheres.
Nobel Prize in Chemistry : Benjamin List & David Macmillan
The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences has named Benjamin List and David WC Macmillan as Nobel Prize winners in chemistry.
