Dates of existence



Ethel Ronzoni was born August 21, 1890, in California. With no family financial support, she put herself through Mills College, earning a bachelor's degree in 1913. She then earned a master's degree from Columbia University in 1914. Ronzoni worked as an instructor at the University of Missouri-Columbia for several years during World War I prior to earning a doctorate in physiology from the University of Wisconsin in 1923.

Ronzoni's special research interest was carbohydrate metabolism. She also conducted research on muscle biochemistry, steroid hormones, and amino acid metabolism.

Ronzoni came to Washington University's biochemistry department directly after completing her Ph.D. From 1923 to 1943, she was an assistant professor. During this period of time she ran the chemistry lab of the Department of Medicine and Barnes Hospital. In 1943 she was promoted to associate professor in biochemistry and remained in that position until she retired in 1959. Post World War II, she switched to neuropsychiatry and ran the lab in the Department of Psychiatry for Edward Gildea, M.D. She was a member of the Society of Biological Chemistry.
