By: Bruce Merrifield (author)Hardback
1 - 2 weeks availability
Bruce Merrifield, eminent American scientist, 1984 Nobel Prize winner and professor at The Rockefeller University, is noted for his single-handed development of solid phase peptide synthesis. The progress of biochemistry and related fields is closely correlated with the availability of pure peptides, and in this volume, Merrifield describes nearly 40 years of progress. The warmth and kindness of this sincere gentleman is described by his personal experiences. Many photographs depict both the professional as well as the personal side of Bruce Merrifield.
