Albert von Szent-Györgyi Nagyrápolt was a Hungarian born American physiologist who received the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1937 “for his discoveries in connection with the biological combustion processes, with special reference to vitamin C and the catalysis of fumaric acid”. His work on muscular contractions was a breakthrough advancement in the field of muscle research. His work also provided the basis for Sir Hans Krebs’s explanation of the complete conversion cycle – ‘the Krebs cycle’. He researched ‘submolecular’ biology, applying quantum physics to biological processes. Later in life, he grew immense interest in cancer and he was one of the first to investigate free radicals as a potential cause of the deadly disease. His long illustrious scientific career included a number of popular publications like‘The Crazy Ape’, ‘On Oxidation, Fermentation, Vitamins, Health, and Disease’, ‘Chemical Physiology of Contractions in Body and Heart Muscle’, and ‘Introduction to a Submolecular Biology’. He served on the front during World War I and during World War II he was active in the Hungarian Resistance Movement. After the war was over, he became a Member of Parliament. Apart from the prestigious Nobel Prize, he also won the Lasker Award in Basic Medical Research in 1954.
