For award-winning scientist, a finished experiment is like a piece of completed art

Another video on the work of recent Nobel winner Thomas Südhof, MD - this one featuring his wife, Lu Chen, PhD, an associate professor of neurosurgery and of psychiatry and behavioral sciences who also studies synapse function in the brain. About Südhof's love of science, Chen comments that he considers a finished experiment a "piece of art completed, something understood." And the fact that he gains so much pleasure from his work is, she says, "what's most inspiring about being with him."
