Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 2016 Goes to Dr. Yoshinori Ohsumi for Discoveries of Mechanisms of Autophagy

We’d like to congratulate Yoshinori Ohsumi for winning the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 2016. Dr. Ohsumi discovered and gave us an understanding of the process of autophagy, which is how cells dispose of and recycle material from the cytoplasm. This process turned out to be more important than originally thought, playing a role in a wide variety of mechanisms and helping the body adapt to changing conditions. The Nobel Assembly at Karolinska Intitutet in Sweden that gives out the annual prize has a great overview of autophagy and how Dr Ohsumi’s efforts led to the fundamental discoveries that deserved such an esteemed award.
