Japanese microbiologist Yoshinori Ohsumi has been awarded this year’s Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine. The 71-year-old Ohsumi was honored for his research into how the body’s cells detoxify and repair themselves.

The Nobel assembly at Stockholm’s Karolinska Institute hopes that Ohsumi’s work will pave the way for new developments into treating these diseases.
