Neurologists & Neuroscientists

  • Richard Axel (1946- ): Topic Page
    S neuroscientist. With US neuroscientist Linda Buck he shared the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine in 2004 for his contributions in determining how the olfactory system recognizes and differentiates between different smells.
  • Sir Charles Bell (1774-1842): Topic Page
    Scottish anatomist and surgeon who carried out pioneering research on the human nervous system. He gave his name to Bell's palsy, an extracranial paralysis of the facial nerve - not the same as the long thoracic nerve of Bell, which he also named and which supplies a muscle in the chest wall.
  • Linda Buck (1947- ): Topic Page
    US neuroscientist. With US neuroscientist Richard Axel she shared the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine in 2004 for her contributions to understanding how the olfactory system is able to recognize and differentiate between different smells.
  • Jean-Martin Charcot (1825-1893)" Topic Page
    French neurologist known for his research into diseases of the nervous system. Sigmund Freud was one of his pupils.
  • Stanley Prusiner (1942- ): Topic Page
    US neurologist who was awarded a Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine in 1997 for discoveries, including the ‘prion’ theory, that could lead to new treatments of dementia-related diseases, including Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases.

Virologists

  • David Baltimore (1938- ):Topic Page
    US virologist who was awarded a Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine in 1975 for his work with Renato Dulbecco and Howard Temin in discovering that certain viruses contain an enzyme, called reverse transcriptase, that makes deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) from ribonucleic acid (RNA).
  • J. Michael Bishop (1936- ): Topic Page
    US virologist and molecular biologist who was awarded a Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1989 with Harold Varmus for their discovery of oncogenes (cancer-causing genes), which, when over-activated or damaged, trigger a normal cell to divide in an uncontrolled fashion.
  • John Cairns (1922- ): Topic Page
    English virologist whose research has focused on cancer and influenza. In 1959 he succeeded in carrying out genetic mapping of an animal virus for the first time.
  • Albert Sabin (1906-1933): Topic Page
    Russian-born US virologist who devoted his long and distinguished career to the development of protective vaccines.
