Green fluorescent protein (GFP) was first isolated by Dr. Osamu Shimomura in 1961. Since then, fluorescent protein (FP) technology has made drastic advancements by many researchers. Currently, FP technology is the most popular tool for visualizing target proteins. Dr. Shimomura, Martin Chalfie and Roger Y. Tsien won the 2008 Nobel Prize in Chemistry to mark their great achievements in life science research.

Mitophagy is the selective degradation of old or depolarized mitochondria by autophagy, mitophogy contributes to maintaining a healthy population of mitochondria. Since damaged mitochondria leads to collapsed cell homeostasis, mitophagy is believed to protect against diseases related to mitochondrial dysfunction such as neurodegenerative disorders, most importantly Parkinson's Disease.
