Node:  Goldstein was a professor of pharmacology at Harvard, then
at Stanford, who had unusually broad interests in fundamental
biochemistry, enzyme kinetics, ecentually molecular biology.  We had
met earlier at some meetings.

At Stanford he was a prime mover in setting an ambitious scientific
course for the new medical school on the Palo Alto campus; in recruiting
Arthur Kornberg and myself; and in the design of the new science-
based medical school curriculum.

He has distinguished himself further in his leadership role in
endorphin and opiod physiology; in the
understanding of drug addiction, and in the development of policies
emphasizing treatment over criminalization.
