The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 2021 was awarded to David Julius and Ardem Patapoutian 'for their discoveries of receptors for temperature and touch'.

David Julius identified TRPV1, a receptor that registers heat in the nerve fibers of the skin. He utilized capsaicin, a pungent compound from chili peppers that induces a burning sensation, to identify the receptor that responds to heat.
