    Watch Nobel Prize Winner Prof. Ada Yonath explain the importance of her discovery

    Prof. Ada Yonath dedicated most of her scientific career to unravelling the minute functions of the ribosome, a multi-component cellular nano-machine, as the cell’s “protein factory”, translating the genetic code into proteins.
    For almost a decade her ribosome crystallography laboratory, established in 1970 in Israel, was the only one of its kind in the country, and by many her work was met with scepticism and disbelief.
    Ada made a breakthrough in 2000 when she revealed the spatial structure of two of the ribosome’s subunits, paving the way for the development of highly advanced drugs. "Those who laughed at me became my competitors" she says now.
    Watch her here.
