Summary The contributors to this book highlight the scientific developments in the field of immunology concerning epitope recognition since the discovery by Karl Landsteiner. Karl Landsteiner ist best known for his discovery of the human blood groups. The revolutionary discoveries of this brilliant scientist in other fields have not received the recognition they deserve. His demonstration that poliomyelitis is transmissable showed the way for modern virology. His studies opening the field for epitope recognition, which he himself considered his main achievement, laid the foundation for research in our days.
