Fruton, J. Eighty years
Joseph S. Fruton. Eighty years
This autobiography offers an account of an active scientific life as a student at Columbia University, as an apprentice at The Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research, and a member of the Yale University faculty. It also tells of the many friendships – with teachers, students, advisers, and colleagues – acquired during those years.
A glimpse is provided of the workings of a great American university in meeting the challenges of advances in scientific knowledge, especially in the biochemical sciences. In addition to a description of the laboratory research of Fruton’s group, an account is given of his efforts as a historian of these sciences. The story also includes recitals of the many pleasures derived from frequent travels abroad.
