this is story is somewhat similar to the Barry Marshall story and his discovery that H.pylori leads to gastric ulcers. That discovery eventually led to a Nobel prize (2005). Also interesting how Dr. Lewin's background and scattered interests and connections led to the dots being connected here. Fits with the thesis of the recent book 'Range' by David Epstein.
