A New York scientist, who once worked in Albany, has been awarded the Nobel Prize in chemistry.
Dr. Joachim Frank is with New York's Columbia University and he also worked at the state Health Department's Wadsworth Center in Albany.
Dr. Frank and two other researchers in the United Kingdom and Switzerland won the prize for developments in electron microscopy.
The president of the American Chemical Society says potential payoffs for such research include help in developing medicines and industrial chemicals.
