Japanese researcher’s discoveries could revolutionize the way we treat diseases

Scientific discoveries made by Yoshinori Ohsumi, a 71-year-old Japanese researcher who won the 2016 Nobel Prize on Monday, are expected to revolutionize the way we treat diseases.

Ohsumi's research on autophagy, a metabolic recycling process in which cells gobble parts of themselves to survive and stay healthy, has significant implications for a n umber of diseases, including diabetes and cancer and certain types of neurodegenerative diseases.
