My Testy Encounter with the Late, Great Gerald Edelman (RIP) | Cross-Check, Scientific American Blog Network

My Testy Encounter with the Late, Great Gerald Edelman (RIP) | Cross-Check, Scientific American Blog Network:



 "Gerald Edelman’s career, like that of his rival Francis Crick, has been eclectic, and highly successful. While still a graduate student, Edelman helped to determine the structure of a protein molecule crucial to the body’s immune response. In 1972 he shared a Nobel Prize for that work. Edelman moved on to developmental biology, the study of how a single fertilized cell becomes a full-fledged organism. He found a class of proteins, called cell adhesion molecules, thought to play an important role in embryonic development."
