Irish scientist Professor William C Campbell will be awarded this year's Nobel Prize for Medicine in a ceremony in Stockholm later today.
The 85-year-old, who grew up in Donegal, was jointly awarded the accolade for his discovery of the drug ivermectin.
Prof Campbell will become the second Irish person to win a Nobel Prize for Science after Earnest Walton collected the physics award in 1951 for his work on splitting the atom.
