GREENBERG, DAVID MORRIS (1895–1988), U.S. biochemist. Greenberg was born in Boston, obtained his doctorate at the University of California in 1924, and became professor of biochemistry at Berkeley in 1941. On his retirement in 1963, he worked as a research biochemist at the Oncologic Institute, University of California Medical School in San Francisco and played a key role in the development of biochemistry on the campus. He contributed broadly to studies on mineral metabolism, enzyme chemistry, and cancer research. Greenberg served on the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission and on the isotopes panel of the National Research Council. He was editor of the Proceedings of the Society of Experimental Biology and Medicine, and served as chairman of the California section of this society. Greenberg was a pioneer in the use of radioisotopes for biochemical investigations. He wrote Aminoacids and Proteins (1951), Chemical Pathways of Metabolism (1954), and Metabolic Pathways (1960). He published more than 400 scientific articles. (Samuel Aaron Miller / Bracha Rager (2nd ed.)
