The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

TOKYO: Ja­pan’s Yoshi­nori Oh­sumi won the 2016 No­bel prize for medicine or phys­i­ol­ogy for his dis­cov­ery of how cells break down and re­cy­cle their con­tent, which could lead to a bet­ter un­der­stand­ing of dis­eases like can­cer, Parkin­son’s and type 2 di­a­betes. “Oh­sumi’s dis­cov­er­ies led to a new par­a­digm in our un­der­stand­ing of how the cell re­cy­cles its con­tent,” the No­bel Assem­bly at Swe­den’s Karolin­ska In­sti­tute said in a state­ment. Oh­sumi has been a pro­fes­sor at the Tokyo In­sti­tute of Tech­nol­ogy since 2009. – Reuters
