An ion pump is an enzyme that transport ions across a cell membrane. In 1957, Skou described the sodium potassium pump. This pump is an absolutely fundamental part of every living cell because it regulates the concentration of salts inside and outside the cell by pumping sodium ions out of the cell. Since Skous discovery of the sodium potassium pump, a considerable number of enzymes with similar properties have been discovered. In 2010 Dale T. Mortensen, a Niels-Bohr professor, won the Nobel Prize in economics. He won the prize for his work in labour market economics, which has been done in collaboration with the economics department at Aarhus University during the past decades. The awarding of the prize to Dale T. Mortensen was another great achivement for the research at Aarhus University.
