Peter Agre, who was awarded the 2003 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, discusses how mobility is helping track Malaria in isolated parts of Africa.

Peter Agre, professor of biological chemistry at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, was awarded the 2003 Nobel Prize in Chemistry by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences. The Academy recognized him for his discovery of aquaporins, the water-channel proteins that move water molecules through the cell membrane. This important breakthrough eventually led to the discovery of an entirely new family of proteins in animals, plants and bacteria. Interviewed in Stockholm during Nobel week, Peter explains how mobility is helping track Malaria in isolated parts of Africa.
