Yale Professor Wins Nobel Prize
NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — A Yale University professor says that learning he won the 2013 Nobel Prize in medicine was like an "out of body experience."
James Rothman is one of three researchers to win the prize for discoveries on how hormones, enzymes and other key substances are transported within cells.
Rothman said work on the project recognized Monday began in 1978.
The 62-year-old Rothman was greeted with a standing ovation at Yale. He says he began his career when federal funding was strong and noted he had five years of failure before success. Rothman said he'll now reapply for lost grant money, hoping the Nobel Prize will help restore the funds.
