What an eventful week for Stanford’s School of Medicine! Two days after molecular neuroscientist Thomas Südhof, MD, won the Nobel Prize in Medicine, we learned that another faculty member, Michael Levitt, PhD, was winner of the 2013 Nobel Prize in Chemistry. At Wednesday’s press conference on campus, Levitt (second-to-right in the photo above) found himself in good company: Though Südhof was still in Europe, conference attendees included Levitt’s fellow Nobelists (from left to right) Andrew Fire, PhD (Medicine, 2006); Roger Kornberg, PhD (Chemistry, 2006); and Brian Kobilka, MD (Chemistry, 2012).
