  2. In retrospect, I can hardly believe I didn’t understand why this was important at the very beginning of the article, even IF I’m not so into bio anymore.

  3. its really great that prof. joining a research team at Princeton University, says he never expected his work to change the world of cell biology. 

  4. Congratulation Professor Shimomura for a job very well done indeed. If only more professor’s in today’s American Society would show the amount of sincere passion and dedication as you have over the past 30 years.
    God bless!

  6. Congratulations Prof. Shimomura! Your discovery is very important to Science. You are very much worthy for the award. 

  7. its nice when people that actually deserved a nobel prize got it. This year when obama got the prize it really damaged the reputation of the the award. they should have given it to someone who actually did something.

  8. “If you find an interesting subject, go study it.Don’t stop. There is difficulty in any research — don’t give up until you overcome that.”

    Can’t agree more with that !

  11. I have always admired people like Osamu Shimomura. People who work for their ideas for so many years and do not back down, deserve admiration. I am sure that this is not the first time when a scientist is working on some kind of invention or research works for years, and becomes successful. I was always interested in what motivates people to do the same every day, to believe in their success, to believe that it will help humanity. The Nobel Prize is certainly a worthy reward for people like him.

    I once read an article from british essay writers about one scientist who worked on his discovery more than 65 years, and was recognized only after death. It was some kind of discovery in medicine (now I do not even remember which one), but I remember that it struck me then. It’s very good that we have such hardworking minds that move progress.
