Stockholm, October 2, 2023 — The Nobel Assembly at the Karolinska Institutet has announced that Katalin Karikó and Drew Weissman will receive the 2023 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for their remarkable discoveries related to nucleoside base modifications. These discoveries have enabled the development of highly effective mRNA vaccines against COVID-19, which have been instrumental in combating the pandemic.

Thanks to the groundbreaking research of the two Nobel laureates, the world has made tremendous strides in understanding how mRNA interacts with our immune system, which paved the way for the swift development of vaccines during one of the most challenging times in modern history. This recognition is well-deserved, and the world is keen to see the continued impact of the two Nobel laureates’ work on the healthcare industry.
