When most people consider some of the most cutting-edge biomedical science today, from cloning to discovering new genes, they have little appreciation for the pioneering work that made such accomplishments possible. To remedy this and to help the public explore the evolution of biomedical discoveries, the National Library of Medicine (NLM) has launched a new Web site, "Profiles in Science," that will allow people to walk in the footsteps of research pioneers—to examine the letters and laboratory notes and other unpublished findings surrounding landmark discoveries.
