Responding to the award of the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine to Professor David Julius and Professor Ardem Patapoutian, President of The Physiological Society, Professor David Paterson said:

“On behalf of The Physiological Society I am delighted to congratulate Professor Julius and Professor Patapoutian on their Nobel Prize.

“Their discoveries of receptors for temperature and touch is a great example of the ground-breaking work of physiologists.

“How we sense the temperature, touch and movement are some of the great questions for humanity. This research sheds light on how we sense and interact with the environment around us.
