At ners-up for the award much earlier. the same time, the specialty of urology experienced a Methods The study is based on an analysis of original remarkable institutionalization in Europe, primarily in files in the Nobel Prize archive in Stockholm, scientific Austria, France, Germany, and Great Britain.
