Carolyn Bertozzi wins Nobel in chemistry

Stanford chemist Carolyn Bertozzi was awarded the Nobel Prize in chemistry 

for her development of bioorthogonal reactions 

which allow scientists to explore cells and track biological processes without disrupting the normal chemistry of the cell. 

Carolyn Bertozzi received an early birthday gift this year. 

Bertozzi, the Anne T. and Robert M. Bass Professor in the School of Humanities and Sciences and a professor of chemistry 

with courtesy appointments in Chemical & Systems Biology and Radiology, has won the 2022 Nobel Prize in Chemistry 

She shares the $10 million Swedish kronor (about $1 million USD) prize equally with Morten Meldal, professor at University of Copenhagen 

The Nobel Prize in Chemistry is awarded by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences.
