Caption: James Whyte Black (1924-2010), Scottish doctor and pharmacologist. Black was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1988. The award was for his development of propranolol (in the 1950s) and his synthesis of cimetidine (in 1964). Propranolol is a beta-blocker used to treat conditions such as high blood pressure and angina pectoris. Cimetidine is used to treat conditions such as heartburn and peptic ulcers. Black was knighted in 1981. Photographed in 1989 at the James Black Foundation, Dulwich, London, England.
