January 30th

American scientist Peter Agre was born on this day in 1949

He was awarded half of the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2003 for his discovery of aquaporins, which are proteins embedded in cell walls that regulate water movement. Each cell is comprised primarily of water, and so aquaporins are required to ensure organised water flow through.
