"for discoveries concerning channels in cell membranes"

Peter Agre - Johns Hopkins University "for the discovery of water channels"

Roderick MacKinnon - Rockefeller University "for structural and mechanistic studies of ion channels"



This is so cool, can you imagine being one of their students?

But I can also imagine people being jealous, since these discoveries are never made alone and usually have taken the sweet blood and tears of students.

I don't see why you would/should be jealous. The fact that you worked with these men alone should be enough. Plus it would look awesome on your resume
