Peter Agre moves back to Baltimore to work with Vann Bennett at the Department of Cell Biology at Johns Hopkins. In 1983, he becomes assistant professor. In the following years, he conducts research on the blood group antigen Rh and 32 kDa proteins, which finally leads to the discovery of the aquaporin water channels.
In April 1991, Peter Agre visits John Parker, a good friend he had worked with at UNC, and describes his research on the 28 kDa protein. John Parker suggests that the protein might be a channel for water. On 9 October 1991, an experiment finally proves that the 28 kDa protein conferred water permeability and must be the long-sought water channel.
