About the event
IWIB Lunch & Learn Tour of the Nobel Forum
On 27 November 1895, Alfred Nobel signed his last will and testament, giving the largest share of his fortune to a series of prizes, the Nobel Prizes. As described in Nobel’s will, one part was dedicated to “the person who shall have made the most important discovery within the domain of physiology or medicine”.
Alfred Nobel had an active interest in medical research. Physiology or medicine was the third prize area Nobel mentioned in his will. Thus, the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine is awarded by the Nobel Assembly at Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden.
