Used by Dr. Lin Tsai to conduct organic chemistry experiments.
Dr. Lin Tsai (1922-2003) was born in Hong Kong, coming to the United States for his Master’s and Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry. He became a naturalized citizen in 1962. He came to the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute in 1959, where he worked in the Laboratory of Biochemistry with Earl and Thressa Stadtman. His research focus was the stereochemical course of enzymatic reactions and the structures and syntheses of organic compounds. His most important work centered on nicotinic acid metabolism and riboflavin degradation.
