Nobel Prize

The 2022 Nobel Prize in Physics has been awarded to three scientists working on experimental and theoretical aspects of quantum mechanics. As set out in the verdict of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, the prize was awarded "for experiments with entangled photons, establishing violations of Bell's inequality and pioneering quantum computing".
Emmanuelle Charpentier and Jennifer Doudna are winners of this year's Nobel Prize in Chemistry. They were honoured for the ground-breaking discovery of the CRISPR-Cas9 system, now widely used as a genomic editing tool that has revolutionized medicine. After the decision of the Nobel Committee had been announced, Charpentier noted that this success was possible thanks to, inter alia, dr. Krzysztof Chyliński, co-discoverer of the family of patents describing the use of CRISPR / Cas9.
