In 1974 he received the Nobel Prize Physiology or Medicine for his discoveries, with A. Claude and C. DeDuve, on the structural and functional organization of the cell. He has also recieved a number of honorary degrees from both American and European universities. Dr. Palade is the author of many articles on issues in cell biology in the Journal of Biological Chemistry, Annals of Biochemistry, Journal of Cell Biology and other scientific journals, as well as in several anthologies and proceedings. He has been editor of the Journal of Cell Biology and Journal of Molecular Biology and is presently editor of the editor of Membrance Biology and Annual Review of Cell Biology.

His Work: Dr. Palade's research has concentrated on cell fractionation and electron microscopy. A series of he that he made on the cytoplasmic membrane systems led to his important work on protein synthesis, especially in the pancreatic cell.
