An amazing achievment!


It is with great pride and love that we congratulate Professor Katalin Karikó and Professor Drew Weissman on their Nobel Prize!


“The Nobel Assembly at the Karolinska Institutet has today decided to award

the 2023 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine jointly to

Katalin Karikó and Drew Weissman

for their discoveries concerning nucleoside base modifications that enabled the development of effective mRNA vaccines against COVID-19.


The discoveries by the two Nobel Laureates were critical for developing effective mRNA vaccines against COVID-19 during the pandemic that began in early 2020. Through their groundbreaking findings, which have fundamentally changed our understanding of how mRNA interacts with our immune system, the laureates contributed to the unprecedented rate of vaccine development during one of the greatest threats to human health in modern times.”   /
