ASBMB Today December 2015

Four of 2015’s Nobelists in chemistry and medicine are ASBMB members. In our two cover stories, Alexandra Taylor talks with the three chemistry winners about their advances in DNA repair and digs into the science behind the medicine prize, which is shared by a member for his work on ivermectin, a drug that’s helped radically lower incidence rates of river blindness and elephantitis. The issue also contains our biggest science-themed gift guide ever!
