Nobel Prize-winning Scientist Turns 100


Do you know that this 99 year old woman scientist still works? Her name is Rita Levi Montalcini and she will turn 100 on Wednesday. She is a Nobel Prize winner shared with American Stanley Cohen for discovering mechanisms that regulate the growth of cells and organs. Wow this woman is amazing. She even quoted that her brain is sharper than it was when she was 20. She also serves as a senator for life in Italy. I am out of words with this woman she is just amazing.
Hope she will have more birthdays to come and share more of her knowledge.
