The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences has awarded the 1982 Nobel Prize in Chemistry to Aaron Klug, “for his development of crystallographic electron microscopy and his structural elucidation of biologically important nucleic acid–protein complexes.” Klug's academic degrees are in physics. After taking a master's degree at the University of Capetown in x‐ray crystallography, he received his PhD in solid‐state physics at Cambridge in 1952. Since 1962 he has been at the (British) Medical Research Council's Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge.
