Sir James Black developed the beta-blocker and is credited with developing the first effective non-surgical treatment for stomach ulcers
Medals and awards charting the career of Nobel Prize-winning scientist Sir James Black have gone on display in Edinburgh.
Sir James, who developed the beta-blocker, has loaned more than 100 items to the National Museums of Scotland in Edinburgh.
The collection includes his Nobel Prize gold medal, awarded to the Lanarkshire-born scientist in 1988.
The items form part of an exhibition telling the story of his life.
Sir James said: "I hope that this exhibition shows that anyone can accomplish what they want in life."
National Museums of Scotland chairman Sir Angus Grossart said: "His generous gift and loan allows us to share the story of his life and work with a wide audience."
As well as pioneering the beta-blocker, Sir James is credited with developing the first effective non-surgical treatment for stomach ulcers.
