This link take you to the page where you can find each prize by year. There is much information, graphics. Publications are also listed.
Pay attention to year of the prize vs. the dates on the publication list. Each student should have one slide illustrating this time line. Be creative.
I also suggest you go to the library (online or otherwise) and read at least the very latest article listed. Read the abstract, introduction and conclusion. Digest this information and use it in your talk.
Ask the librarian how to find this statistic for this article: how many times it was cited in other published articles. It might be with the article on the database search sites.
Use the textbook online to get background information on the topic. Tell us the basics before you go into the tricky stuff.
Always include why the discovery in basic science is important in health and disease. What did the discovery lead to over the years? New treatments, new tests, etc. Dig into the significance of the discovery.
