American biologists win 2009 Nobel Prize for Medicine

Three cheers for biologists Carol Greider (shown on left), Elizabeth Blackburn (shown on right), and Jack Szostak, who share this year's Nobel prize for medicine. The trio was awarded "for the discovery of how chromosomes are protected by telomeres and the enzyme telomerase."

Hats off to the three scientists--but especially the SciGirls in the group! See more images.
