A quantitative GT study of the effects of professional recognition on the careers of scientists who work within a medical research organization devoted almost exclusively to basic research. The study deals with the perennial prob­lem of "In what ways is it possible to have an organizational career that is consistent with a professional career devoted to basic research?” This means a professional career that is respected by scientists; hence, a career based primarily on the scientist’s professional recognition and reputation in his field and only secondarily on his organizational reputation. Furthermore, what degree of recognition is necessary to achieve this general reputation in science at large?
