Abstract

COMMENTARY:

Intriguing interludes with Nobel laureates have marked the history of Lymphology. Bounded (or rather unbounded) by a mutual fascination with ignorance and the unknown,their curiosity converged around microbes,infections, and host responses mediated by the lymphatic system. These studies transcended a simple "molecular model of life."

Keywords: Lymphology, ignorance, ignoramics, Florey, Lederberg, Barre-Sinoussi
