Dr. Grollman received his B.A. in chemistry from the University of California at Berkeley and his M.D. from the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. Following internship and residency in internal medicine at Johns Hopkins, he conducted research at the National Institutes of Health. He then joined the faculty of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Bronx, N.Y., where he became professor of medicine, pharmacology and molecular biology. He served concurrently as associate dean for scientific affairs at Albert Einstein from 1970 to 1972 and held a similar position in the School of Medicine at SUNYSB from 1994 to 1996.
