Finding the elusive aquaporin modulators

Aquaporins are channel proteins that facilitate the transport of water across cells. The discovery of aquaporins in 1992, for which researcher Peter Agre received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry, opened the door to a new therapeutic approach for treating many health conditions. On one particular start-up’s journey in finding applicable aquaporin modulators, the student has become the master. Water is one of the substances that are essential for life on Earth and for the survival of all plants and animals. Although the importance of water transport has been recognized since ancient times, the...
