Frederick Sanger Nobel Prize

Frederick Sanger was an English biochemist who twice won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry.
He is one of only two people to have done so in the same category (the other is John Bardeen in physics),
and the fourth person with two Nobel Prizes.
 In 1958, he was awarded a Nobel Prize in Chemistry
"for his work on the structure of proteins, especially that of insulin".
In 1980, Walter Gilbert and Sanger shared half of the chemistry prize
"for their contributions concerning the determination of base sequences in nucleic acids".
