The Fundamental Contribution of Robert A. Good to the Discovery of the Crucial Role of Thymus in Mammalian Immunity
Robert A. Good (Fig. 7.1) began his intellectual and experimental queries related to the thymus in 1952 at the University of Minnesota, initially with paediatric patients. However, his interest in the plasma cell, antibodies and the immune response began in 1944, while still in Medical School at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, with his first publication appearing in 1945 (Good and Campbell, 1945).
