Plenary Presenter
Erwin Neher | Nobel Laureate | MPI for Biophysical Chemistry, Goettingen
Along with Bert Sakmann, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1991 for "discoveries concerning the function of single ion channels in cells". Neher and Sakmann were the first to record the currents of single ion channels on a live cell (the first recorded using the lipid bilayer method) through their development of the patch-clamp technique.
