Detailed Biography:

Stephen Cederbaum was born in Brooklyn, NY. After graduating from Midwood High School, he attended Amherst College and received a BA degree with honors in Chemistry. He graduated from NYU School of Medicine in 1964 with honors in Biochemistry and was elected to Alpha Omega Alpha. He was an intern and resident in Internal Medicine at Barnes Hospital and Washington University School of Medicine. After two years at the National Heart Institute in Bethesda, he received medical genetics training at the University of Washington. He has been at UCLA since 1971. He sees patients with genetic and metabolic disorders, has a research laboratory and is active in teaching and training. He is married, has two grown children and lives in Santa Monica, CA.
