The collection consists of pictorial materials, including photographs provided by Dr. Ignarro, assembled for "Louis J. Ignarro: the Road to Stockholm: a Nobel Mission," an exhibit displayed in the UCLA Biomedical Library, 1999.

Background
Louis J. Ignarro was born May 31, 1941, in Brooklyn, New York. He studied chemistry and pharmacy as an undergraduate at Columbia University and pharmacology, with a minor in cardiac physiology, at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, where he received a Ph.D. in 1966. Following an appointment in the Department of Pharmacology at Tulane University in New Orleans (1979-1985), he became Professor of Molecular and Medical Pharmacology at the UCLA School of Medicine in Los Angeles in 1985. In 1998, Ignarro, Robert F. Furchgott, and Ferid Murad were jointly awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for their discoveries concerning "nitric oxide as a signaling molecule in the cardiovascular system."
