Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine

The Nobel Prize in Medicine or Physiology is one of the Nobel Prizes established by Alfred Nobel, a Swedish inventor and scientist. The Nobel Prize in Medicine or Physiology has accentuated important discoveries such as penicillin, genetic engineering and blood-typing. The Nobel Prize in Medicine is awarded annually and and recognizes individuals in the field of Medicine or Physiology. As designated in the will of Alfred Nobel, the Nobel Prize in Medicine or Physiology shall be distributed "… to the person who shall have made the most important discovery within the domain of physiology or medicine."

    Kirt Blattenberger,

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
