About Philip Edward Smith

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philip_Edward_Smith

Philip Edward Smith (January 1, 1884 - December 8, 1970) was an American endocrinologist who is best known for his work studying the pituitary gland. He developed methods for removing pituitary glands from tadpoles and rats and showed that such removal resulted in cessation of growth, and atrophy of other endocrine glands such as the adrenal cortex and the reproductive organs. After graduating with a PhD in Anatomy from Cornell University in 1912, he joined the Department of Anatomy, Berkley California until 1926. From 1927 to 1952 he served as Professor of Anatomy at the College of Physicians and Surgeons at Columbia University. He became a research associate at Stanford University where he published his last paper in 1963.
