Martin Rodbell (1925-1998) was an American biochemist and molecular endocrinologist who shared the Nobel Prize in 1994 in Physiology or Medicine for his discovery of G-proteins and the principles of signal transduction in cellular communication. The National Library of Medicine is the repository for the Martin Rodbell Papers, which range from 1925 to 1999. The Martin Rodbell Papers contain laboratory notebooks, research reports, published articles and books, poems, correspondence, unpublished manuscripts, speeches, news clippings, photographic prints, and audiovisual materials.

As part of its Profiles in Science project, the National Library of Medicine is digitizing and making available over the World Wide Web a selection of the Martin Rodbell Papers, for use by educators and researchers. This Web site provides access to the portions of the Martin Rodbell Papers that are now publicly available. Individuals interested in conducting research in the Martin Rodbell Papers are invited to contact the National Library of Medicine.

This online Exhibit is designed to introduce you to the various phases of Rodbell's scientific career and professional life. It is divided into sections that focus on Rodbell's life and major scientific contributions. We suggest that new visitors begin with this exhibit, which includes a small selection of documents and visuals, organized within these sections. Each section begins with a "Background Narrative," which leads to "Documents" and "Visuals."

Visitors may access additional materials through Search on the navigation bar. They may also view the materials alphabetically or chronologically by choosing Browse on the navigation bar. Documents and visuals in these lists are arranged by format and then either alphabetically by title or chronologically.
