About the Author
Howard S. Rosenzweig is a Ph.D. organic chemist. He has been involved in research for many years, in both academia and industry. He has been innovative, as evidenced by the patent awarded to him for part of his Ph.D. work [for synthesis of cyclic, cis-vicinal tertiary diamines] as well as the more recent inventions of his method for purification of Tc-99m-labeled monoclonal antibodies, conceiving and developing a new class of synthetic transfection reagent as well as a patent for novel materials for contact lenses. However, his interests are far wider than science, for he also composes songs [both music and lyrics] ranging from blues, latin jazz and love ballads. He is currently an adjunct faculty member at Oakton Community College. He is happily married to Maria Papadopoulou, who is an internationally recognized Ph.D. organic chemist, as well as a very talented artist and poet. They live happily as well with their son Vasilios in Skokie, Illinois.
