Oswald Avery Scholarship

About Oswald Avery

Oswald Avery was born in 1877 in Canada. Avery was one of the first molecular biologists and was a pioneer in immunochemistry, but he is best known for his discovery in 1944 that DNA is the material of which genes and chromosomes are made. He is known as one of the most deserving scientists not to receive the Nobel Prize for his work.
