Albert Dorfman, Ph.D., M.D.

University of Chicago, Chicago, IL 
"Albert Dorfman"

(1916 - 1982)
ALBERT DORFMAN's research for more than thirty-five years on the biosynthesis and chemistry of bacterial and connective tissue polysaccharides provided the basis for many medical advances in human biochemical genetics, as well as in prenatal diagnosis of genetic diseases that cause mental retardation. One of his many scientific accomplishments was discovering the cause of Hurler's syndrome, a genetic disease that affects the bones and cartilage and results in mental retardation.
