Caption: Albert Szent-Gyorgyi (1893-1986), Hungarian-US biochemist. Szent-Gyorgyi was born in Budapest, Hungary, and began studying medicine before being called up in 1914 to the Austro-Hungarian army. He did not enjoy the experience and returned to his studies once the war ended. Szent-Gyorgyi went on to research ascorbic acid (vitamin C), a compound he had isolated at Cambridge in 1928. For this he won the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1937. By 1935 Szent-Gyorgyi was looking at the biochemistry of muscle and his work was later developed by Hans Krebs. In 1947, Szent-Gyorgyi emigrated to the USA where he worked on the thymus gland and cancer.
