Dr. Robert Lefkowitz, a professor of biochemistry, pathology and medicine at Duke University Medical Center and an investigator for the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, as well as Dr. Brian Kobilka, a professor of molecular and cellular physiology and medicine at Stanford University, received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for their work on how cells identify and react to hormones. About half of drugs work through G-protein-coupled receptors, and the Lefkowitz and Kobilka's work could lead to treatments with fewer side effects.
Nobel goes to physicians for research on how drugs work
