Robert Lefkowitz bookYou can’t grow up in the Bronx, enter medical school at age 19, serve as a Yellow Beret for the National Institutes of Health (NIH), discover one of the most therapeutically accessible proteins in the human body, and win the Nobel Prize for Chemistry without acquiring some stories. And Robert Lefkowitz, MD, James B. Duke Distinguished Professor of Medicine in Duke University’s School of Medicine, has some good ones.

So good, in fact, that his former trainee Randy Hall, PhD, now a professor of pharmacology and chemical biology at Emory University, insisted that they work together to write them down. The result is Lefkowitz’ first memoir, titled “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Stockholm” which will be published in February 2021.
