The Nobel Prize announcements

It is once again time to honor extraordinary scientific discoveries.

We have covered the announcements, written about the discoveries and interviewed the Laureates since 2008.

Stay updated by visiting our site and reading our upcoming issues of the magazine! Until the 2022 announcements and interviews, here are some highlights from the past 15 years!



The Nobel Prize – Editor’s Pick



Our Nobel issues have included exclusive interviews with the Laureates, in-depth articles about the discoveries and their applications within life sciences, as well as Nordic progress in the different Nobel-awarded areas. Throughout the years, we have had the opportunity to meet and interview many Nobel Laureates in Chemistry and Medicine, and these are some of my favorites!
