Leon I. Golberg Memorial Lecture Series

Dr. Leon Goldberg is the founder of the University of Chicago’s Committee on Clinical Pharmacology.  Dr. Goldberg, one of the giants of clinical pharmacology, was best known for his work with dopamine, having played an essential role in its preclinical and clinical development as a vasopressor.   He also can be credited for methylnaltrexone, approved in 2008 for the treatment of opioid-induced constipation.  He was recruited to the University of Chicago in 1974 as Professor of Pharmacology and Medicine, where he remained until his untimely death from lymphoma in 1989.
