Read from February 18 to 22, 2011

Fascinating story fascinatingly told of some of the biggest players in transplant medicine and chemistry, with some background stories about major milestones in drug development (sulfonamides, penicillin, etc.), mainly focusing on pre-clinical (before testing in humans) work. Would be of interest to people in the field of drug development as well as the general reader.
