Nobel Prize in Chemistry for automating the previously daunting task of synthesizing complex proteins. His work helped develop such treatments as blood pressure medications, insulin, and other hormone medications. He received his B.S. in chemistry in 1943 and his Ph.D. in biochemistry in 1949, both from UCLA. He joined what was then the Rockefeller Institute for Medical research in 1949 and became an emeritus professor in 1992.
