Polio VirusMicrobiologist John Franklin Enders, virologist Thomas H. Weller and physician Frederick Chapman Robbins together develop a technique to grow poliovirus in test tube cultures of human tissues. This approach gave virologists a practical tool for the isolation and study of viruses. Enders, Weller and Robbins were awarded the Nobel Prize in Medicine or Physiology in 1954.
