He basically invented a flashlight. A unique flashlight that is able to light up the inside of animals, plants and parts of their cells. Professor Martin Chalfie used green fluorescent protein and recieved 2008 Nobel Prize in Chemistry. Thanks to his discovery, scientists can watch individual cells in the brain as well as their development which is crucial for understanding many diseases and searching for a medicine. For example cancer, Alzheimer's or Parkinson's disease. Why did he research a tiny transparent worm? Which other scientists followed-up on his work? And when did he steal?
