Nobel Prize 2016 : “YOSHINORI OHSUMI” awarded the 2016 #NobelPrize in Physiology or Medicine.
CONGRATULATE YOSHINORI OHSUMI:
“YOSHINORI OHSUMI” awarded the 2016 #NobelPrize in Physiology or Medicine.
He has discovered and elucidated mechanisms underlying autophagy, a fundamental process for degrading and recycling cellular components.
”That was the hardest time in my life!”
First he choose to study chemistry at the University of Tokyo, but found out it wasn’t so attractive. Then he joined a molecular biology lab, but did not get very good results in his work and had a hard time to find a job.
So Yoshinori Ohsumi, the 2016 Nobel Prize Laureate in Physiology or Medicine, went to New York to work at The Rockefeller University. There he worked on mammalian cells for the first time, and did not know much about it.
