The question of our origin and what makes humans unique has engaged humanity since ancient times. To answer these questions 2022 medicine laureate Svante Pääbo developed methods to study DNA from Neanderthals. Read more about his research:
Who was the first person to predict global warming? #NobelPrize laureate Svante Arrhenius more than 120 years ago. Read the paper he published in Philosophical Magazine all the way back in 1896 (pdf):
Who had the biggest impact on you when you were growing up? Last year's medicine laureate Svante Pääbo tells us about his mother who inspired and encouraged him from an early age. #NobelPrize
We're thrilled to have Svante Jurnell, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, #EasternLightAB as a speaker at #SubmarineNetworksEMEA In 2023, the event will bring together 800 senior leaders from the global subsea market for two jam-packed days. …
Check out this recent interview with 2022 medicine laureate Svante Pääbo regarding his work sequencing the Neanderthal genome and how understanding Neanderthal DNA is a reference point for understanding human evolution. #NobelPrize
Op-ed from @SvanteMyrick in @GlobeOpinion : Tyre Nichols and the culture of toxic policing
"My father Sune Bergström gave me these books in 1971, when it seemed as if I would leave the world of science. But that didn't happen..." Medicine laureate Svante Pääbo donated books to the #NobelPrize museum he had received from his father, medicine laureate Sune Bergström.
Svante Pääbo, the Swedish geneticist who found the Neanderthal in all of us, wins Nobel prize I am proud to be about 2% Neanderthal. An artistic, intelligent, peaceful hominid. And like me they had a poor sense of direction.
This year's medicine laureate Svante Pääbo is obsessed with Neanderthals and finding out how we modern humans relate to our ancestors. Learn more about the 2022 medicine laureate:

BREAKING NEWS: The 2022 #NobelPrize in Physiology or Medicine has been awarded to Svante Pääbo “for his discoveries concerning the genomes of extinct hominins and human evolution.”
"Quite recently, only some 2,000 generations or so ago, there were some other humans with us who were similar, but clearly distinct from us. It gives us some perspective." Get to know our new medicine laureate Svante Pääbo:
Say good morning to our new medicine laureate Svante Pääbo! Pääbo received the news while enjoying a cup of coffee. After the shock wore off, one of the first things he wondered was if he could share the news with his wife, Linda. Photo: Linda Vigilant
Our new medicine laureate Svante Pääbo made a splash when his colleagues at @MPI_EVA_Leipzig threw him into a pond. Normally throwing a colleague into the pond happens when somebody receives a PhD, and they wanted to do it for Pääbo's #NobelPrize as well. Video: Benjamin Vernot
2022 #NobelPrize laureate Svante Pääbo found that gene transfer had occurred from these now extinct hominins to Homo sapiens. This ancient flow of genes to present-day humans has physiological relevance today, for example affecting how our immune system reacts to infections.
2022 #NobelPrize laureate Svante Pääbo has established an entirely new scientific discipline, paleogenomics. By revealing genetic differences that distinguish all living humans from extinct hominins, his discoveries provide the basis for exploring what makes us uniquely human.
Through his pioneering research, Svante Pääbo – this year’s #NobelPrize laureate in physiology or medicine – accomplished something seemingly impossible: sequencing the genome of the Neanderthal, an extinct relative of present-day humans.
“The last 40 thousand years is quite unique in human history, in that we are the only form of humans around.” Take a listen to our interview with 2022 medicine laureate Svante Pääbo who reflects on our relationship to extinct species of early hominins. Listen here:
Svante Pääbo – awarded the 2022 #NobelPrize in Physiology or Medicine – also made the sensational discovery of an extinct hominin, the Denisova, entirely from genome data retrieved from a small finger bone specimen.
2022 #NobelPrize laureate in physiology or medicine Svante Pääbo was born in 1955 in Stockholm, Sweden. In 1999 he founded the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig, Germany@MPI_EVA_Leipzig ) where he is still active.
