In a monographic issue of Studies in History and Philosophy of Biological and Biomedical Sciences (33, 2002) dedicated to molecular biology in postwar Europe, Bruno J. Strasser re-examined and compared the institutionalization of molecular biology in four European local contexts (Cologne, Cambridge, Paris and Geneva), examining how the new field was construed and how it was legitimized and acquired its broader meaning. From this comparative approach, five common themes stand out: 1) the role of physics in the atomic age 2) the relationship between fundamental research and medical applications 3) the "Americanisation" of scientific research 4) the value of science in the reconstruction of national identities 5) the drive towards interdisciplinary research.
