Arnold is the fifth woman to win the prize. The 2017 Nobel Prize in chemistry was awarded to researchers Jacques Dubochet, Joachim Frank and Richard Henderson for their work in cryo-electron microscopy, which the academy said "both simplifies and improves the imaging of biomolecules."

The 3 winners announced Wednesday bring to 181 laureates who have won the chemistry prize since it was first awarded in 1901.
