“Where are the Chinese Nobel Prize winners in science?"

Just one school in southern california has more Noble Prize winners than the combined countries of India, China and Indonesia...

One city in southern california with a population around 140,000 has more science than the combined population of 2 billion people.

As the Nobel Prizes are being handed out this year for Physics, Chemistry and Physiology/Medicine, many people are asking the question, "Where are the Chinese Nobel Prize winners in science?"

All four of the mainland China-born winners of the Physics prize (Charles K. Kao, Daniel C. Tsui, Chen Ning Yang and Tsung-Dao Lee) received their graduate training and did their prize-winning research outside of China (three in the US, one in the UK). The one Taiwan-born Chemistry Prize winner, Yuan Tseh Lee, did his graduate work in the US and has remained here for his prize-winning research.
