This year’s Nobel Prize winners has been revealed. In the category of physiology or medicine, three scientists have won the award for their work on cells’ ability to sense and react to oxygen availability. The awards are a recognition of work that advances each of the respective fields. Nobel winners are given a medal, a certificate and a cash award of about $900,000. Here is the list of 2019 Nobel Prize winners:
