The Nobel Prize in Medicine has been jointly awarded to James Allison of the University of Texas and Tasuku Honjo of Japan’s Kyoto University for their discovery of a new form of cancer therapy. The two men will receive a cash prize of nine million kronor, which is around $1 million. The Nobel Prizes will continue to be awarded during the week—the physics prize is to be announced Tuesday, followed by chemistry, and the winner of the Nobel Peace Prize will be named Friday.

Arnault was convicted Monday and was sentenced to two years in prison.
