COHN, EDWIN JOSEPH (1892–1953), U.S. biochemist. Born in New York, Cohn became professor of biological chemistry at Harvard and head of the department in 1938. Cohn's fields of research were the chemistry of the liver, plasma, and other tissue proteins. He discovered a method of fractioning blood plasma, and the varied subjects of his papers included aminoacids, peptides, the separation of gamma globulin, liver extract, thrombin, fibrinogen, and isohemagglutinin. Cohn wrote Proteins, Amino Acids, and Peptides as Ions and Dipolar Ions (1943) and Research in the Medical Sciences – the March of Medicine (1946). Cohn received awards and decorations from many governments and the Medal of Merit from the U.S. government in 1948. (Samuel Aaron Miller)
