In Memoriam -- Günter Blobel (1936-2018)

The McArdle Laboratory mourns the loss of Günter Blobel, Nobel Prize-winning cell biologist who discovered and characterized how proteins are targeted within cells. Günter was one of the first trainees in McArdle's Cancer Biology Graduate Training Program to receive a Ph.D. (in 1967), training with Van Potter. He went on to doing ground-breaking research for five remarkable decades at the Rockefeller University in New York.
