    Congratulations - Nobel prize in medicine awarded to hypoxia researchers


    William G Kaelin, Sir Peter Ratcliffe and Gregg L Semenza share award for work on how cells adapt to oxygen availability.

    Hypoxia inducible factors (HIF) play an important role in our everyday physiology. Hypoxia (a low tissue oxygen content) is a feature of many diseases including chronic lung disease, lung disease and many cancers.

    We had the privilege to cooperate with Professor Sir Peter Ratcliffe, a researcher at the University of Oxford, on the awarded topic.
