Fritz Albert

Lipmann, Fritz Albert, 1899-1986, American biochemist, b. Germany, grad. Univ. of Berlin (M.D., 1922; Ph.D., 1927). He emigrated to the United States in 1939 and became a citizen in 1944. In 1941 he became research chemist at Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, and in 1949 professor of biochemistry at Harvard medical school. For his discovery of coenzyme A, a crucial intermediary in carbohydrate oxidation, he was awarded jointly with H. A. Krebs the 1953 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine.

Fritz-Albert Popp (born 1938 in Frankfurt am Main, Germany) is a German researcher in biophysics.

After studying experimental physics in Göttingen and Würzburg, Popp earned his PhD in theoretical physics at Mainz University and later became a professor at Marburg University.

His research began with the confirmation of the existence of biophotons, which had earlier been studied by Terence Quickenden in Australia. International projects led to cooperation with scientists such as Walter Nagl, Ilya Prigogine and David Bohm. He became an Invited Member of the New York Academy of Sciences and an Invited Foreign Member of the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences (RANS). For a time, he worked at Princeton University. Popp was the founder of the International Institute of Biophysics in Neuss, Germany.
