    Sir John B. Gurdon, UK, and Professor Shinya Yamanaka, Japan, were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for the discovery that mature cells can be reprogrammed to become pluripotent. Both winners are published Wiley authors; Sir John Gurdon has authored several book chapters on genetics and stem cells, as well as articles in four journals. Professor Yamanaka has written articles in six journals as well as an article to be published in the Encyclopedia of Molecular Cell Biology and Molecular Medicine, coming in spring 2013.

    The Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded jointly to Professor Robert J. Lefkowitz and Professor Brian K. Kobilka, of the USA, for studies of G-protein–coupled receptors. Both Professors Lefkowitz and Kobilka have published articles in many Wiley journals, and Professor Lefkowitz has also authored the introductory chapters of two books, including G Protein-Coupled Receptors as Drug Targets: Analysis of Activation and Constitutive Activity, Volume 24.

    Professor Serge Haroche, France and Dr. David J. Wineland, USA, were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics for ground-breaking experimental methods that enable measuring and manipulation of individual quantum systems. Both winners have authored articles for Wiley journals including Fortschritte der Physik and Annalen Der Physik as well as several book chapters.

    The Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel for 2012 has been awarded jointly to Professors Alvin E. Roth and Lloyd S.
