    Scientists who discovered cause of narcolepsy win Breakthrough Prize

    Emmanuel Mignot and Masashi Yanagisawa won the 2023 Breakthrough Prize in life sciences for their discovery of the molecular mechanisms in the brain that cause the sleep disorder narcolepsy

    My first wife had narcolepsy and at least one other relative. So this represents real progress in the field.

    Cool discovery, but why are they calling it the 2023 breakthrough prize? It's not even 2023 yet. What if there is a better discovery that year? I don't get it.
