A Nobel Prize laureate in Vilnius University students’ conference

„Try to find out what interests you the most, if that challenge can truly take over your mind. If so, then try finding the best laboratory to solve your problem“ – an advice given to young scientists by professor Erwin Neher, a famous German biophysicist. In 1991 he was awarded with a Nobel Prize for physiology or medicine with professor Bert Sakmann for their discoveries concerning the function of single ion channels in cells.
