Peter Mitchell, Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1978, died on April 10 from cancer. Mitchell worked in biochemistry, specifically in the transport of solutes by cell membranes. Its main objective has been to clarify the relationships between the transport of solutes through membranes and metabolism. His main ideas were expressed in two books published on his own in 1966 and 1968.
Mitchell had to fight hard to carry out the investigation. In addition to health problems, entities granting scholarships and research grants had a marginalized role. In addition, he conducted his main investigations in a rural house in Kornualles, arranged and arranged by himself.
