The Markus Library is pleased to present a new exhibit in Welch Hall (level 2) honoring an extraordinary human being, molecular biologist, and Rockefeller scientist, Gunter Blobel. Dr. Blobel came to Rockefeller in 1962, joining the cell biology laboratory of George Palade who became his mentor and friend. Dr. Blobel won the Nobel prize in 1999 and donated the entire sum to restoration projects in the city Dresden.
