Abstract

Over the years,our faculty and students in nuclear medicine at Hopkins,were the best and the brightest,not only in the United States,but all over the world.Among our young distinguished faculty in the early days was Dr.Arthur Karmen.While a medical student at the New York University College of Medicine,he developed the first spectophotometric method for assaying glutamine oxaloacetic transaminase (SGOT)in the blood,a procedure that became widely used throughout the world.I first met Art when we were at the National Heart Institute of the NIH in 1955—1957.He became a leader in the study of amino acids,sympathetic amines,steroids,and fatty acids.He came to Hopkins in 1963,and subsequently left to become head of Laboratory Medicine at Albert Einstein School of Medicine in New York.
