Personal Fact of Martin Rodbell

Martin Rodbell was an American biochemist and molecular endocrinologist who received the 1994 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine with Alfred G. Gilman. Although his parents wanted him to pursue medicine he earned his bachelor’s degree in biology from John Hopkins University and PhD from Washington University at Seattle. Subsequently, after two years of postdoctoral work at the University of Illinois, he joined National Institute of Health and began his career as a researcher at its National Heart Institute at Bethesda.

Here he began his work on lipoproteins and successfully detected five different proteins. But very soon, he left this field to study the functions of hormoneson isolated cells. Afterward, on being inspired by Sutherland’s theory of second messenger, he began working on signal transduction, which led to the discovery of G-protein. This work earned him the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine.

Apart from being an excellent scientist, he was also a warm and friendly human being. In later years, he interacted with youngsters and encouraged them to take up basic research. He pressed upon the fact that one need not be privileged or extraordinary in order to make major scientific contributions.
