  1. Making Biomedicine in Twentieth-Century Italy: Domenico Marotta (1886–1974) and the Italian Higher Institute of Health.Daniele Cozzoli & Mauro Capocci - 2011 - British Journal for the History of Science 44 (4):549-574.
    This paper focuses on the role played by Domenico Marotta, director of the ISS for over twenty-five years, in the development of twentieth-century Italian biomedicine. We will show that Marotta aimed to create an integrated centre for research and production able to interact with private industry. To accomplish this, Marotta shifted the original mission of the ISS, from public health to scientific research. Yet Mussolini's policy turned most of the ISS resources towards controls and military tasks, opposing Marotta's aspiration. By (...)

  • “A Cold Spring Harbor in Europe.” EURATOM, UNESCO and the Foundation of EMBO.Francesco Cassata - 2015 - Journal of the History of Biology 48 (4):539-573.
    This article explores the problem of the foundation of the European Molecular Biology Organization, by reconstructing a broader institutional framework, which includes other international actors – EURATOM, UNESCO and the International Laboratory of Genetics and Biophysics in Naples – and a relevant, but still neglected figure, the Italian geneticist Adriano Buzzati-Traverso. The article considers the tension between centralized and federal models of organization in the field of life sciences not just as an EMBO internal controversy, but rather as a structural (...)

  • Academic and Molecular Matrices: A Study of the Transformations of Connective Tissue Research at the University of Manchester (1947–1996). [REVIEW]Miguel García-Sancho - 2011 - Studies in History and Philosophy of Science Part C: Studies in History and Philosophy of Biological and Biomedical Sciences 42 (2):233-245.
    This paper explores the different identities adopted by connective tissue research at the University of Manchester during the second half of the 20th century. By looking at the long-term redefinition of a research programme, it sheds new light on the interactions between different and conflicting levels in the study of biomedicine, such as the local and the global, or the medical and the biological. It also addresses the gap in the literature between the first biomedical complexes after World War II (...)
