On April 5, 1979, Brandeis awarded Dr. Cesar Milstein its eighth annual Rosentiel Award for excellence in scientific research. Milstein was a biochemist at the Medical Research Council Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge, England who had made critical contributions to the field of immunology with his research of antibodies.

The award is named in honor of Lewis S. Rosenstiel who helped create the Rosentiel Basic Medical Sciences Research Center. Dr. Richard Krause, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, delivered the keynote address at the event. Rosentiel director Harlyn Halvorson and Elizabeth Rosenstiel Kalber, a University Fellow, presented the award to Milstein.
