Sir Bernard Katz was born on March 26 1911 in Leipzig and died on April 20 2003 in London. He was a German-born biophysicist, he discovered with Paul Fatt that neurotransmitter release at synapses is quantal that is, that at any particular synapse the amount of neurotransmitter released is never less than a certain amount, and if more is always an integral number times this amount. He shared the Nobel Prize in physiology or medicine in 1970 with Julius Axelrod and Ulf von Euler.
