'Entering an Unseen World: A Founding Laboratory and Origins of Modern Cell Biology 1910-1974'
Date:1/31/2013

In 1974, the Nobel Prize was awarded to three pioneering scientists for discoveries that linked structures inside cells to their functionsdiscoveries that led to the new science of cell biology. Entering an Unseen World, a new book published by The Rockefeller University Press, presents the human story behind these breakthroughs.

Entering an Unseen World describes how one laboratory contributed to creating modern cell biology. The story begins in 1910 in a laboratory devoted to studying cancer at The Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research. Editor and contributor Carol L. Moberg tells a compelling story about the early years of this laboratory. She focuses on five aspects of how modern cell biology unfolded through time: the hundreds of scientists involved, a nurturing environment, the experimental procedures developed, the instruments devised and mastered, and the discoveries made in a previously unseen world.

First-person chapters by 22 scientists associated with the laboratory follow. They recount the exploration of the intricate and fascinating world inside living cells. Their stories show what it takes to create a science while revealing in detail what we now take for granted: the cell is the basic structural and functional unit of all known living organisms. Nearly 150 classic illustrations and photographs document the evolution of their discoveries. Entering an Unseen World conveys the excitement of the process and progress as this science came to life.
