Longtime friend and colleague Jacques Fresco, the Damon B. Pfeiffer Professor in the Life Sciences at Princeton, said that Gilvarg was a "major figure" in intermediary metabolism, the chemical processes through which cells produce energy, the building blocks of proteins and other essential components.
"He was brilliant, an outstanding researcher," said Fresco, who met Gilvarg in the 1950s when both were postdoctoral researchers in New York City.
Fresco helped lure Gilvarg from the New York University School of Medicine to Princeton in 1964, the year after Gilvarg received the American Chemical Society's Paul Lewis Award for outstanding researchers under 40.
At Princeton, Gilvarg and Fresco shared an office suite for decades.
It came in handy as we were expanding the young department and adding new faculty," Fresco said.

Studies are currently in progress, in collaboration with Dr. Jaques Fresco (Princeton University), to determine why this DNA damage is so mutagenic.Recently, we have established a collaboration with the Jet Propulsion Laboratory/Caltech to develop methods to identify damage products, even when no standard is available, using sophisticated signal deconvolution techniques developed for the space program.
Once we have identified novel forms of DNA damage, we attempt to determine how that type of DNA damage would change the DNA function.The primary perturbation of DNA function relevant to the development of genetic disease is base miscoding.Normal DNA bases form complementary base pairs during DNA replication, allowing the DNA code to be copied with high fidelity.DNA damage can substantially increase the chances that a given DNA base will miscode, generating a genetic mutation.
