The Major Histocompatibility Complex and T-Lymphocyte Response

  • F. H. Bach


It is the great rarity in biomedicine to find an individual who is not only an enormous contributor to medical science and practice but who also influences, in a major way, the progress in his or her field. Professor Walter Brendel is such an individual; he has made not only highly original contributions but has worked in a major way to establish the field in which he has functioned. His influence has reached far outside his own direct works, and it is in this way that he has encouraged the flourishing of basic studies.
