In 1951, Rosenkranz and two colleagues Carl Djerassi
, an Austrian-born scientist and fellow refugee from Nazi Europe, and Luis Miramontes, a Mexican doctoral student were credited with making norethindrone, a synthetic version of the hormone progesterone that is also called norethisterone.
In 1966, Lederberg recruited for us Professor Carl Djerassi
, one of the most influential chemists of all time, the father of the Pill [birth control pill] and the head of Stanford's mass spectrometry laboratory.

, who is often called "the father of the pill" and whose work on synthetic progesterone paralleled that being undertaken by Pincus and, separately, a third scientist, Frank Colton.
, an eminent chemist who 63 years ago synthesized a hormone that changed the world by creating the key ingredient for the oral contraceptive known as "the pill,'' died at his home in San Francisco on Friday.
, 90, contributed to the invention of Norethisterone, the first highly active progestin, a synthetic steroid used in oral contraceptives.
