Two Triangle Chemists Win Nobel Prize
Two of the three winners of this year’s Nobel Prize for Chemistry live and work in the Triangle. Aziz Sanjar is a professor of bio-chemistry and bio-physics at the UNC-Chapel Hill School of Medicine. Paul Modrich is a professor of bio-chemistry at Duke University. As WUNC’s Dave DeWitt reports, it was another example of collaboration between two universities that may be known best as fierce rivals.
