At Brandeis University in Waltham, scientists and students raised glasses of champagne in honor of two researchers who are newly minted Nobel laureates.

Professor emeritus Jeffrey Hall and professor Michael Rosbash led research that casts light on the inner workings of our body clocks. They've been awarded the Nobel Prize in physiology or medicine.

WBUR's Carey Goldberg joined All Things Considered to discuss their research.
