Former NIAID Fellow Drew Weissman Earns a 2023 Nobel Prize
You may recognize a few faces in this 1992 photograph of the NIAID Laboratory of Immunoregulation, then led by Anthony Fauci. Drew Weissman, co-winner with Katalin Karikó of the 2023 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine “for their discoveries concerning nucleoside base modifications that enabled the development of effective mRNA vaccines against COVID-19,” is seated crosslegged in the first row, third from the right. Weissman was a NIAID fellow from 1991 to 1993. More than 20 NIH fellows have gone on to win a Nobel Prize.
