Rosalyn Yalow, in a paper accepted for publication in March 1960, described a new accurate and elegant methodology "Immunoassay of endogenous plasma insulin in man".
Reasonable, perhaps, one might think, unless one were Solomon Berson and Roselyn Yalow, whose work on immunoassay (which was to receive a Nobel prize in 1977) was rejected by the Journal of Clinical Investigation.
Yalow was awarded the Nobel Prize in physiology/medicine for this achievement after Dr.
