Open call to Nobel Foundation to establish a Nobel prize in Biology

Alfred Nobel (1833-1896)Image via WikipediaThe 2008 Nobel Chemistry prize has gone to another biological discovery.

Isn't it already time for a Nobel prize in Biology (or Molecular Biology)?

How long will the chemists suffer to see their prizes going to their biologist friends?

Is it fair that Chemistry, Physics, Medicine has their prizes and Biology not?

Who decides to establish another Nobel prize?

Stop this torture! Free the chemists!

UPDATE: It seems like I am not alone.

  1. I completely agree. This is a terrible injustice.
    For years now I have been let down by seeing biologists winning the Nobel prize in Chemistry. I'm sure they are great scientists, but they are not Chemists.
    Viva La Chemists!!!
