Not to the department this year.
- Physics: To Roger Penrose (Oxford U.) for the discovery that black hole formation is a robust prediction of the general theory of relativity; and to Reinhard Genzel (Max Planck & UC Berkley), and Andrea Ghez (UCLA) for the discovery of a supermassive compact object at the centre of our galaxy.
- Chemistry: Emmanuelle Carpentier (Max Planck) and Jennifer A. Doudna (UC Berkley), for the development of a method for genome editing.
