In 1895, the Swedish chemist, Alfred Nobel, established the Nobel Prizes. The award is presented annually to exemplars in the fields of Medicine & Physiology, Chemistry, Physics, Economic Sciences, Peace and Literature. Each recipient receives a gold medal, a diploma and a sum of money decided by the Nobel Foundation. Some of the past recipients from India include Rabindranath Tagore, CV Raman, and Amartya Sen.

This year, the Prizes were announced in October. Eleven pioneers and one organisation from across the world were recognised for their contributions.

Let’s hear from Aishwarya about the contributions of the Medicine & Physiology Laureates in episode two of our Nobel Prize 2020 podcast.
