Winners will not be invited to Stockholm as usual, but will receive awards in their respective countries.

Nobel laureates will be awarded Nobel medals and certificates at Swedish embassies in relevant countries or their research universities, and the ceremony will be broadcast live online at Stockholm City Hall.

The Nobel prize money comes from the interest or investment income of the fund established by Nobel. With the change of the income of the Nobel fund, the Nobel prize money fluctuates.

Nobel Prize winners in physiology or medicine in recent five years

In 2018, American immunologist James Allison and Japanese biologist bensuyou won the Nobel Prize for their contribution to the discovery of negative immunomodulatory therapy for cancer.

In 2017, three American scientists, Jeffrey hall, Michael rosbash and Michael young, won awards for their achievements in the study of the molecular mechanism of the operation of the biological clock.

In 2015, Tu Youyou, a Chinese female pharmacist, and William Campbell, an Irish scientist, and a Japanese scientist, Azumi, won awards for their achievements in the treatment of parasitic diseases. Tu youyou became the first mainland scientist to win the Nobel Prize in science, realizing the zero breakthrough of the Nobel Prize in physiology or medicine for Chinese scientists.

Every year, the shortlist of Nobel Prize winners is highly confidential, and the nominees are also secret, which can not be disclosed to the public for 50 years. However, the prediction of Nobel prizes has been continuous, especially the Nobel Prize in physics, chemistry and medicine, which represent the pinnacle of scientific achievements, and there are also some hot fields to win prizes every year.

The list of winners of citation laureate in 2020 has been announced a few days ago. Among the winners of this years scientific awards, molecular immunology, cancer treatment and nervous system diseases in the fields of Physiology or medicine have attracted much attention; the winners of the physics prize have made outstanding contributions in the fields of dark matter and new materials; the winners of the chemistry prize have won awards for their research in organic crystals and nano metals.

In the view of the scientific community, the award of Nobel Prize is not disorderly, each award has a relatively hot field. For example, physics awards are increasingly focused on particle physics, atomic and molecular photophysics, condensed matter physics and astrophysics.

Shi Yu, a professor of physics at Fudan University, said that the prediction before each award was a summary of scientific development in the past period of time. According to his analysis, this years Physics Nobel Prize is likely to be awarded to three scientists who have contributed to the development of condensed matter physics: Maximilian Haider (Austrian), Harald Rose (German) and Knut urban (Germany). The reason for the award is that the aberration correction electron microscope has been invented, which further improves the accuracy of observing atoms.

David penderbury, a senior analyst at correview, said he was optimistic about Carlos Frank of Durham University, Julio Navarro of Victoria University in Canada and Simon white, former director of Max Planck Institute of astrophysics, who are expected to rely on the formation of the galaxy, the structure of the universe and darkness He won the Nobel Prize in physics for his work in material research.

In terms of chemistry awards, according to the prediction of chem bark, DNA synthesis technology, CRISPR gene editing, metal organic materials, organic light-emitting semiconductor materials and so on have become hot topics. Among them, Edith flanigen, 91, who is famous for his research on zeolites, Omar Yaghi and makotofujita (2018 Wolf Prize for Chemistry) were nominated.
