Aage Bohr studied at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark, and followed his father into research in theoretical nuclear physics. He worked at the Niels Bohr Institute of Theoretical Physics, Copenhagen, from 1946, serving as director of the Institute (following his father's death) from 1963 to 1970. Work carried out with Rainwater and Mottelson led to the three of them sharing the 1975 Nobel Prize in Physics.
