    schema:description "Also explored is the relationship between the environment (the hospital, the university, and the city) and the search for knowledge. These narratives expand our perspective on twentieth-century medical history by presenting these individuals' experiences as extended biopsies of the period and place, focal points illuminating the personal nature of medicine and locating the discipline within a social and institutional setting."@en ;
