‘t Hooft and Veltman did their Nobel Prize work around 1970. Not until results were presented from the particle accelerator LEP at CERN, the European Laboratory in Geneva, was the breadth of their contributions realised.
Their work and discoveries range from cancer therapy and laser physics to developing proteins that can solve humankind’s chemical problems. The work of the 2018 Nobel Laureates also included combating war crimes, as well as integrating innovation and climate with economic growth. Find out more.
