He worked at Johns Hopkins University, in the pharmacology department. He then worked from 1913 at the US Public Health Service (later the National Institute of Health). Areas he worked on included chemotherapy, parathyroid drugs, and the toxicology of uranium compounds. In 1938, he became the first director of the National Cancer Institute. He retired in 1943, though he continued teaching at the University of Rochester.
