The Wittenbergs: A Personal Appreciation
In this chapter the author presents his appreciation of the interacting personalities and scientific skills of Beatrice and Jonathan Wittenberg that have made them a pre-eminent partnership in haemoglobin research. His impressions are based on 40 years of observation and occasional joint experimentation in respect of their work defining the role of haemoglobins in the facilitated diffusion of oxygen within animal and plant tissues.
