Reviews

“…a useful addition to the literature on the development of American medical science during the last fifty years. As the author states in his preface, our understanding of biomedical research in the United States “will remain incomplete until the role of the independent research institute is more thoroughly examined.” Coriell is a fine beginning.” – Medical History Society of New Jersey Newsletter
