Leon Rosenberg, a lecturer with rank of professor in molecular biology and the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs , has received the annual George M. Kober Medal from the Association of American Physicians.
The association has given the award annually since 1925 "for research in scientific medicine." Rosenberg was cited for his discoveries of the biochemical and molecular mechanisms responsible for several inherited metabolic disorders in children. He conducted extensive research in that area during 26 years as a faculty member at the Yale University School of Medicine, where he also served as dean.
Rosenberg came to Princeton in 1998 from the Bristol-Myers Squibb pharmaceutical company, where he was president of the research division.
