Will any of us iGEMers get the Nobel Prize in the future?

Recently, a friend reflected to me that because we were working late into the night, one day one of us is going to get the Nobel prize.

Well, I wonder. It’s not necessarily the scientists who toil into the night who win the Nobel prize. Nobel prizes are given to the most “inspired” (as opposed to “inspiring”) scientists, scientists who make a breakthrough. Need an example? Think Kary Mullis. 😉
