STOCKHOLM (AP) — The winner, or winners, of the Nobel Prize in physiology or medicine will be announced Monday at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden. Among the researchers who may be honored this year are those who were instrumental in the development of the mRNA technology that went into COVID-19 vaccines, which saved millions of lives across the world. Last year’s recipients were David Julius and Ardem Patapoutian for their discoveries into how the human body perceives temperature and touch. The medicine prize kicks off a week of Nobel Prize announcements. It continues Tuesday with the physics prize, chemistry on Wednesday and literature on Thursday. The 2022 Nobel Peace Prize will be announced on Friday and the economics award on Oct. 10.
