The term hormone is by now familiar to all, but it is the English physiologist and physician Ernest H. Starling's term, and before him the search made little sense even in the light of "internal secretion". He saw the great potential of regulatory physiology through chemical coordination of the bodily functions by the circulating blood. Throughout his life he stressed fundamental scientific attitudes and ideas with remarkable persistence and power, and hormones have stood the test of time. Sadly, he never received a Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine.
