Caption: Lina Solomonovna Stern (1878-1968), Soviet physiologist. Stern was born in what is now Latvia, and was educated in Switzerland, becoming a professor at the University of Geneva in 1918. Her most famous work was in 1921 on the blood-brain barrier. She emigrated to the USSR in 1925, where she rose to become Director of Institute of Physiology of the USSR Academy of Sciences (1929-1948). She became the first full female member of the Academy in 1939, and was awarded the Stalin Prize in 1943. She was exiled following a purge in 1949, and was rehabilitated after Stalin's death in 1953. Photographed in Moscow, Russia, in 1962.
