Abstract

Intriguing interludes with Nobel laureates have marked the history of Lymphology. Bounded (or rather unbounded) by a mutual fascination with ignorance and the unknown, their curiosity converged around microbes, infections, and host responses mediated by the lymphatic system. These studies transcended a simple "molecular model of life.".
