The Nobel Prize for Medicine was jointly awarded yesterday to a guy at my work!

Prof Barry Marshall, The University of Western Australia.

The other cowinner was Dr Robin Warren of Royal Perth Hospital.

I'm not sure when these two started researching into the Helicobacter pylori but Prof Marshall is still researching into it over 20 years after their discovery. It's wonderful to see people who have worked so long and so hard on such a good cause recognised.

I don't know Prof Marshall at all but I'm still really excited. Our whole Uni is

They're so cool. Apparently they were in a cafe and one recieved THE phone call from Stolkholm first. The Nobel people told him not to tell the other one as they wanted to tell him first, so he was trying to work out how to do hand signals across the table.

I love the fact that such a large and professional organisation like the Nobel Prize committee rings people and says "but don't tell anyone"

Won't. Seriously, it is straying a long way from what the award is supposed to be for (but has strayed a long way before).

I don't want to be a smart-ass, but it's not the Nobel Peace Prize committee, but the Nobel Price Committee.
The Nobel Peace Prize only is a "branch" of the Nobel Prize

It's really a funny story, nad the best wishes to your university from me

Most of the nominees deserve the prize, so Bono and Geldof, too. But I think they will award another person.

oops. Sorry. Musn't type excited. Yep you are correct. The peace prize is one prize. Prof Marshall co-won the medicine prize. I wrote that, then mangled it.

Edited: I've edited my two posts. Thanks again for pointing that out. Please feel free to do so again. I'm the sort that prefers to be corrected than repeat something stupid.

I don't know about Bono, as proud as I would be it would seem very strange

On a related note, why is the Peace prize sexier than the other prizes? I notice this every year. Is it becasuse the people who win the peace prize are often, but not always, famous? Is it the celebrity factor?

The Australian of the Year awards often suck as the winner is usually a sports person. I understand that all fields of endeavour are to be praised but its quite lopsided in favouring the celebrity sportsperson.

As is the Nobel awards. Not the actual awards themselves but the reporting and the chatter.

Why?
