Einstein/Montefiore Department of Medicine

Anatol Morell, Emeritus Professor of Medicine

Anatol Morell, Emeritus Professor of Medicine, died at age 95 on March 16, 2009. Dr. Morell was the long-time research collaborator of Dr. Herbert Scheinberg, at Einstein and then St. Lukes-Roosevelt. Dr. Anatol isolated and crystallized the blood copper-binding protein, ceruloplasmin, and discovered a liver receptor that recognized asialoglycoproteins in 1974 with Gilbert Ashwell.

He was married to Halina who, until she switched to a career in clinical psychology and counseling, was the long-time research collaborator of Irving London, first at P&S, and then here at Einstein. She may have been best known to visitors to the lab as a rapier-witted raconteur. Their son Pierre received his PhD in Biochemistry from Einstein, became a distinguished teacher and investigator in Neurobiology at the University of North Carolina, and died at 62 in 2003.
