Yale's two Nobel laureates receive their prizes
Yale’s two laureates were among those honored at the 2013 Nobel Prize Award Ceremonies in Stockholm on Dec. 10.
James E. Rothman, the Fergus F. Wallace Professor of Biomedical Sciences, and professor and chair of the Department of Cell Biology, received his prize as co-winner of the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine. Robert Shiller, Sterling Professor of Economics, was honored as co-winner of the 2013 Prize for Economic Sciences.
Rothman earned a Nobel Prize for his work on how molecular messages are transmitted inside and outside of our cells. He shares the prize with Randy Schekman of the University of California, Berkeley and Thomas Südhof of Stanford University.
Shiller shared the prize with Eugene F. Fama and Lars Peter Hansen from the University of Chicago. The three were honored “for their empirical analysis of asset prices.”
