Alan Lloyd Hodgkin

University of Cambridge, Cambridge, England, United Kingdom 
"Alan Hodgkin"

(1914 - 1998)
The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 1963 was awarded jointly to Sir John Carew Eccles, Alan Lloyd Hodgkin and Andrew Fielding Huxley "for their discoveries concerning the ionic mechanisms involved in excitation and inhibition in the peripheral and central portions of the nerve cell membrane".
