Interdisciplinary collaborations now sweep most fields of the natural and life sciences, necessary to tackle the world's most challenging problems. Yet, the scientific enterprise continues to be dominated by old stereotypes: Interdisciplinary science is less likely to receive funding and is discriminated at institutional levels. Ample solutions for funders, institutions and publishers have been suggested, but the most visible form of scientific credit has so far been ignored: How interdisciplinary is our award system? To address this question, we explore interdisciplinarity in the most prestigious award in science, the Nobel Prize.

Last year, a cutting edge scientific imaging technology called cryo-electron microscopy earned a Nobel Prize for chemistry, lauded by the committee as ushering in a "revolution in biochemistry." The technique allows scientists to visualize biomolecules in their natural state for the first time ever, and one year on is already opening up some exciting possibilities. Now, scientists have used it to image a high-potential cancer-killing virus in unprecedented detail, allowing them to now ponder how it might be genetically modified to better do the job.

WATERLOO—University of Waterloo professor and winner of the Nobel Prize in physics Donna Strickland is now a full professor, the university confirmed Thursday.
In a Tuesday BBC Radio interview with host Phil Williams, Strickland said she received the promotion a week ago.
“I’ve now been encouraged by many people to apply and so I did apply and I have now been made, full professor. I’m happy about that,” she said.
The 59-year-old Waterloo resident was awarded the prize in early October along with her former PhD supervisor Gérard Mourou, for their groundbreaking work in the field of laser physics. The two developed a laser technique called Chirped Pulse Amplification and first wrote about it in a 1985 paper. A third person, Arthur Ashkin of the United States, also won the prize for a separate invention.
When the award was announced there was much attention paid to Strickland

Strikingly few Nobel laureates within medicine, natural and social sciences are women. Although it is obvious that there are fewer women researchers within these fields, does this gender ratio still fully account for the low number of female Nobel laureates? We examine whether women are awarded the Nobel Prizes less often than the gender ratio suggests. Based on historical data across four scientific fields and a Bayesian hierarchical model, we quantify any possible bias. The model reveals, with exceedingly large confidence, that indeed women are strongly under-represented among Nobel laureates across all disciplines examined.

Lederman, the physicist credited with inventing the term 'god particle,' died last week at a nursing home in Idaho.
A former head of the prestigious Fermi National Accelerator Lab and a 1988 winner of the Nobel Prize in physics, Lederman had suffered acute dementia in the last years of his life, resulting in round-the-clock care and its heavy expenditure — a financial burden the revered scientist's family were unprepared for.

This year, the Nobel Prize in Chemistry recognizes that when scientists need to improve enzymes and antibodies, scientists sometimes find that the most rational thing they can do is abandon rational design. Instead, they may resort to directed evolution, that is, a human-directed version of the biology’s most powerful process. The pioneers of directed evolution recognized by the Nobel committee include Frances H. Arnold of the California Institute of Technology, George P. Smith of the University of Missouri, and Sir Gregory P. Winter of the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology. Arnold received half the Nobel “for the directed evolution of enzymes,” and Smith and Winter shared the other half “for the phage display of peptides and antibodies.” Like natural evolution, directed evolution involve mating and selection.
