Summary
Russian scientist Elie Metchnikoff was a Nobel Prize winner who vastly advanced our understanding of the immune system and is credited with creating the field of gerontology, which is the study of aging, lifespans, and longevity. Penned by his wife, this thoughtful and probing biography presents a detailed account of the obstacles Metchnikoff overcame on the path to scholarly prominence.
