This time of year it's always fun to learn about the discoveries leading to Nobel prizes, and about the amazing people who made those discoveries. Three biochemists were added to the Nobel ledger this morning, including Thomas Lindahl of the Francis Crick Institute in London.

Great discoveries and exceptional science are, of course, very often the product of key collaborations. Included in one of Dr. Lindahl's outstanding collaborations is work in 2002, published in Nature with Robert Hausinger, studying the mechanism by which a ubiquitous dioxygenase, AlkB, repairs lesions in DNA.  

Great news all around, and a testament to the excellent basic research done by Bob, and in MMG more generally!
