Physicist Wins 2009 Chemistry Nobel Prize

Physicist Venkatraman Ramakrishnan shares the 2009 Chemistry Nobel Prize for the study on the ribosome.

Brookhaven has released a video of a lecture given by him. It doesn't say where and when (edit: 2004) it was given, but he acknowledged Brookhaven as being instrumental in his research career.

In fact, both Ramakrishnan and another winner, Thomas A. Steitz of Yale, have Brookhaven connections. It also appears that all 3 of them have performed part of their work at Argonne as well! So it looks like EVERYONE is trying to prove their connection to the Nobel prize winners! :)
