Edward A. Doisy

Born 13 Nov 1893; died 23 Oct 1986 at age 92.Edward Adelbert Doisy was an American biochemist who shared (with Henrik Dam) the 1943 Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine for his isolation and synthesis of vitamin K, a substance that encourages blood clotting (1939), used in medicine and surgery. With the embryologist Edgar Allen (1922-34), he developed assay techniques that facilitated research on sex hormones. Doisy and his associates isolated the sex hormones estrone (theelin, 1929; the first estrogen to be crystallized), estriol (theelol, 1930), and estradiol (dihydrotheelin, 1935). In 1936-39 he isolated two forms of the vitamin, (K1 from lucerne seed and K2 from fish meal, in a pure crystalline form), determined their chemical structures, and synthesized the vitamin.«

A married fellow gets home ear...

A married fellow gets home early from work and hears strange noisescoming from the bedroom. He rushes upstairs to find his wife naked onthe bed, sweating and panting.
"What's up?" he asks.
"I'm having a heart attack," cries the woman.
He rushes downstairs to grab the phone, butjust as he's dialing, his 4-year-old son comes up and says, "Daddy!Daddy! Uncle Ted's hiding in your closet and he's got no clothes on!"
The guy slams the phone down and storms upstairs into the bedroom, pasthis screaming wife, and rips open the wardrobe door. Sure enough, thereis his brother, totally naked, cowering on the closet floor. "Youbastard!!!" says the husband. "My wife's having a heart attack, and allyou can do is run around the house naked scaring the kids?"
