2005 Nobel Prizes

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Time for the Nobel Committee to announce the winners of the Nobel Prize.

The first announced was Medicine.

Barry J. Marshall & J. Robin Warren from Australia "for their discovery of the bacterium Helicobacter pylori and its role in gastritis and peptic ulcer disease"

These two are incredible because they are "regular" guys that took such a simple disease that everyone was convinced was caused by one thing and turned it all on its ear.
