Swedish geneticist Svante Paabo wins 2022 Nobel prize

Swedish geneticist Svante Paabo won the 2022 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine on Monday for discoveries that provide our understanding of how modern-day humans evolved from extinct ancestors. The award’s panel said, his study also provides key insights into the immune system and human uniqueness compared with their extinct cousins. Paabo’s key achievements include sequencing an entire Neanderthal genome to reveal the link between extinct people and modern humans.

Sixty-seven-year-old Paabo performed his prizewinning studies in Germany at the University of Munich and at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig. Paabo is the son of Sune Bergstrom, who won the Nobel prize in medicine in 1982.

The medicine prize kicked off a week of Nobel Prize announcements. It continues with the physics prize on Tuesday, chemistry on Wednesday, and literature on Thursday. The 2022 Nobel Peace Prize will be announced on Friday and the economics award on October 10.

Last year’s medicine recipients were David Julius and Ardem Patapoutian for their discoveries into how the human body perceives temperature and touch. The prizes carry a cash award of nearly 900,000 US dollars and will be given on December 10 this year.
