The recipients of annual Nobel Prizes are currently being announced by Swedish and Norwegian institutions in recognition of academic, cultural, or scientific advances.

So far, William Kaelin Jr, Peter J. Ratcliffe and Gregg L. Semenza have been awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for their discoveries of how cells sense and adapt to oxygen availability.

The Nobel Prize in Physics has also been awarded, going jointly to James Peebles, and Michel Mayor and Didier Queloz, for contributions to our understanding of the evolution of the universe and Earth’s place in the cosmos.

The Nobel Prize in physics, chemistry, literature, and peace, and the prize in economic sciences, will follow over the next seven days. The awards are a recognition of work that advances each of the respective fields.

Nobel winners are given a medal, a certificate and a cash award of about $900,000 (when multiple people win a single Nobel, they typically split the cash award.)

2019 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine
William G. Kaelin Jr., Sir Peter J. Ratcliffe and Gregg L. Semenza won the 2019 Nobel Prize in physiology or medicine. The trio “identified molecular machinery that regulates the activity of genes in response to varying levels of oxygen,” according to The Nobel Assembly. Their work, says the Assembly, has “paved the way for promising new strategies to fight anemia, cancer and many other diseases.”

2019 Nobel Prize in Physics
James Peebles, Michel Mayor and Didier Queloz won the 2019 Nobel Prize in physics. Peebles, of Princeton University, received half of the award, per the Nobel Assembly, for work focused on “theoretical discoveries in physical cosmology,” while Mayor and Queloz, of the University of Geneva (and, for Queloz, Cambridge University) shared half the award “for the discovery of an exoplanet orbiting a solar-type star.”

“This year’s Laureates have transformed our ideas about the cosmos,” the Assembly wrote in a release accompanying the Prize’s announcement. “While James Peebles’ theoretical discoveries contributed to our understanding of how the universe evolved after the Big Bang, Michel Mayor and Didier Queloz explored our cosmic neighborhoods on the hunt for unknown planets. Their discoveries have forever changed our conceptions of the world.”
