Prior to 1901, when the first Nobel Prize was awarded, most of the cutting-edge scientific research and theory was being done in Europe, where many of the world-class chemists, physicists, and medical researchers resided. By 2004, Americans had won more than 200 Nobel Prizes in the sciences - more than any other single nation. During that century American scientists, regardless of their discipline, led the way in developing the theories and experiments that have propelled humankind's knowledge of science forward. American Scientists provides 250-300 entries on the scientists who have greatly impacted society and the scientific community. Each authoritative entry covers the scientist's background information, including details about the individual's professional career and accomplishments within the scientific world.
