Are there any living Nobel laureates in physics (apart from David Gross, François Englert and perhaps Gerard 't Hooft and Steven Weinberg) who have made research in string theory or at least find it attractive?

When was the most recent Nobel prize-winning work in high energy theoretical physics performed, where "most recent" refers to when the work was done, not when it won the Nobel prize.
