Bert Sakmann Biography | World of Scientific Discovery (727 words)
Bert Sakmann, along with physicist Erwin Neher, was awarded the 1991 Nobel Prize in physiology or medicine for inventing the patch clamp technique.
Sakmann's early interest in ion channels was stimulated by two papers published in 1969 and 1970 that gave strong evidence for the existence of ion channels.
Sakmann has continued to work with other research teams, altering the genes for identified ion channels in order to trace the molecules in the channel responsible for opening and closing the ion pore.
