John Franklin Enders (1897-1985), US microbiologist and Nobel laureate. Enders shared the 1954 Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine with Frederick Chapman Robbins and Thomas Huckle Weller. The share of the Nobel was awarded for Enders's discovery that polio viruses can be cultured in tissues, which led to the development by others of a successful vaccine against it.
