UC Berkeley Auctions NFTs of Nobel Prize-winning Inventions

The recent rise in popularity of NFTs has prompted the University of California, Berkeley to also get involved. The university is auctioning NFTs for two Nobel Prize-winning inventions that might be two of the most important biomedical breakthroughs of the 21st century. While UC Berkeley will continue to own the relevant patents.

The two NFTs link to online digitized documents. They include internal forms and correspondence that document the research findings in the initial stages that led to both these incredible biomedical breakthroughs. The first is the CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing, for which UC Berkeley’s Jennifer Doudna shared the 2020 Nobel in Chemistry, and the second is cancer immunotherapy, for which James Allison shared the 2018 Nobel in Physiology or Medicine.
