Caption: Wendell Meredith Stanley (1904-1971), US biochemist. Stanley studied at the University of Illinois, attaining a doctorate in chemistry. In 1931 he joined the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research in Princeton. In 1948 he became Director of the Virus Laboratory at the University of California. He was the first to isolate, crystallise and characterise the tobacco mosaic virus, though some of his conclusions were later shown to be incorrect. In 1949 he discovered that viruses can cause cancer. Stanley shared the 1946 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his work on viruses. He was also awarded the Franklin Institute's Franklin Medal in 1948.
