Last year's prize went to the World Food Program, which was set up in 1961 at the command of US President Dwight Eisenhower to battle hunger all throughout the planet. The Rome-based UN office was commended for looking to end starvation as "a weapon of war and struggle."

The lofty honor is joined by a gold decoration and 10 million Swedish kronor (more than $1.14 million). The prize cash comes from an estate left by the prize's maker, Swedish creator Alfred Nobel, who kicked the bucket in 1895. On Monday, the Nobel Committee granted the prize in physiology or medication to Americans David Julius and Ardem Patapoutian for their disclosures into how the human body sees temperature and contact.
