The Nobel Prize-winning cancer researcher signed this FDC in bold black ink.
First Day Cover signed: "Renato Dulbecco", 6½x3½. FDC highlighting endangered flora, postmarked June 7, 1979, 15-cent stamp affixed, FIRST DAY OF ISSUE. Typed address of a collector in Waco, Texas. Pencil notes (unknown hand). Renato Dulbecco (1914-2012) received a Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1975 for his role in drawing a link between genetic mutations and cancer. In proving this connection, Dulbecco, along with his former student Howard Temin and separate research by David Baltimore, changed the way scientists thought about cancer and the effects of carcinogens. In 1986, Dulbecco proposed cataloguing all human genes, an impetus for the Human Genome Project completed in 2003. Although he became a US citizen in 1953, Dulbecco, who had done his prize-winning research at Cal Tech and later presided over the Salk Institute, returned in his later years to the staff of the National Research Council in his native Italy. Pencil notes (unknown hand) at lower edge and below signature. Otherwise, fine condition.
