Silver necklace inspired by the Nobel Prize 2020 in Physiology or Medicin. It shows Hepatitis C virus; a part of the lipid envelope around the icosahedral protein shell in thin silver plate.
The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 2020 was awarded to Harvey J. Alter, Charles M. Rice och Michael Houghton for the discovery of Hepatitis C virus. The Hepatitis C virus is a small enveloped RNA virus. The virus particle consists of a lipid membrane envelope. Within the envelope is an icosahedral core and inside the core is the single-stranded RNA molecule.
