ABSTRACT
Gilman, Alfred Goodman (1941-), is an American physician and scientific researcher who made important discoveries about how living cells communicate with each other and respond to outside influences. In 1977, Gilman proved that substances known as G-proteins help relay the signals a cell receives from other cells or from forces outside the body, such as light or odors. Researchers have since linked abnormal G-proteins to cancer, cholera, diabetes, and other diseases. For his work, Gilman shared the 1994 Nobel Prize in physiology or medicine with the American biochemist Martin Rodbell, who first suggested the existence of G-proteins.
