SALVADOR LURIA
Salvador Luria was one of the founders of modern
microbiology. He was a bacterial geneticist at MIT
and won the Nobel Prize of Physiology or
Medicine in 1969. In his autobiography, A Slot
Machine, a Broken Test Tube, Luria discussed his
experience with depression and psychotherapy.
Luria also was an outspoken political advocate, an
opponent of nuclear weapon testing, and a
protester of the Vietnam War. Later, he was
involved in debates over genetic engineering,
advocating a compromise position of moderate
oversight and regulation rather than the extremes
of a complete ban or full scientific freedom.
