I am taking an Endocrine Physiology class, and yesterday the professor showed a slide of Solomon Berson and Rosalyn Yalow's letter of rejection for publication of their paper on Exogenous Insulin Resistance. This is the same research that lead to the development of the Radioimmunoassay, for which Yalow won the Nobel Prize in 1976. Apparently, when she went to Stockholm to receive her award, she showed the slide of the rejection letter, thumbing her nose as the periodical that rejected her work. Yesterday, I also received two (more) letters of rejection from medical schools. I think I will save them, to display proudly, just in case.
