Max Delbrück was a German born American biophysicist who initiated the study of molecular biology. He won the prestigious Nobel Prize, together with other members of the ‘Phage Group’ - Alfred Day Hershey and Salvador Luria, for their work on bacteriophages. Born in a family of academicians, he was interested in science since childhood and grew up to receive a Ph.D. in physics from the University of Göttingen. When he joined the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Chemistry as a research assistant, his interest in bacteriophages was aroused. Disapproving of the Nazi agenda, he immigrated to the United States in 1937, serving as a faculty member of the California Institute of Technology and later, the Vanderbilt University. Eventually, he became a U.S. citizen. He formed the Phage Group with Luria and Hershey and the trio went on to win the 1969 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine “for their discoveries concerning the replication mechanism and the genetic structure of viruses”. His work encouraged new findings in molecular biology by other scientists, especially the breakthrough discovery that viruses contain the genetic material Deoxyribonucleic Acid (DNA), and the eventual understanding of the structure of DNA itself.
