Cell Pioneer George Palade's Body Left for Science

Scoring Update! The points change, death remains the same...

Dr. George Palade, who won a Nobel Prize in 1974 for his work isolating and identifying cell structure and helped create one of the leading cell biology programs in the nation at the University of California, San Diego, has died. He was 95. Palade died Tuesday, the university announced.

"George Palade was not only one of the leading scientists of his era, but was a pioneer in modern cell biology, using electron microscopy to study and describe subcellular structures for the first time," said Dr. David A. Brenner, vice chancellor for health sciences.
