    You'd think the summary could at least list the 3 inventions that the scientists are being honored for: The first is an oral Hepatitis C drug, the second is a leukemia drug, and the third is for developing atmospheric pressure chemical vapor deposition technology, which can be used, among other things, for coating glass with certain chemicals to help change solar heating properties in windows, etc.
