Dr. Carl Djerassi, inventor of 'The Pill,' to receive honorary doctorate from Rutgers University
Date:5/4/2010

translation of theory into practice, and his efforts to promote international scientific cooperation in Latin America and Africa, Djerassi is one of the most prolific organic chemistry researchers of his time. He has published more than 1,200 articles and seven books dealing with the chemistry of natural products and the application of physical methods to organic structure determination.

In addition to his career in science, Djerassi has also achieved distinction in the arts. For the past 20 years, Djerassi has turned to fiction writing, mostly in the genre of "science-in-fiction" novels and "science-in-theater" plays that examine the human side of scientists and the personal conflicts faced by them in their quest for scientific knowledge, personal recognition and financial reward. His works on the culture and behavior of scientists include five highly successful novels and eight plays that have been presented on stages from London to Tokyo to New York. In 1979, he founded the Djerassi Resident Artists Program, which provides residencies and studio space for artists in the visual arts, literature, choreography, and music. To date, the program has served nearly 2,000 artists from all over the world. He has one of the largest private collections in the world of the works of Paul Klee, which he has donated in equal parts to the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and the Albertina Museum in Vienna.

A member of the U. S. National Academy of Sciences and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, as well as many foreign academies, Djerassi has received many honors and awards. He was inducted into the National Inventors Hall of Fame in 1978. Djerassi was the first recipient of the highly prestigious Wolf Prize in chemistry and of the first Award for the Industrial Application of Science presented by the National Academy of Sciences. He also holds the American Chemical Society's highest award, the Priestley Medal, and the Erasmus Medal of the Aca
