The images in this collection are derived from high resolution scans of glass 3.25 X 4 inch"lantern slides" that were part of a large collection of slides covering his years at the Rockefeller University and Yale University School of Medicine. These selected images were scanned by James D. Jamieson, M.D., Ph.D., a student of Palade.
While at Yale, George Palade and Marilyn Farquhar were dedicated to teaching and made the cell biology course for medical students the outstanding course in the basic sciences at the medical school andprobably in the country, a reputation it continues to enjoy. Electron microscopic images and their interpretation were key components of their teaching.
It is Dr. Palade's wish that this collection of his electron microscopic images be freely available to students and scientists world-wide.
