Albert Szent-Györgyi Imre (1893-1986), a Hungarian-born biochemist, was the first to isolate vitamin C, and research on biological oxidation provided the basis for the Krebs citric acid cycle. His discoveries about the biochemical nature of muscular contraction has revolutionized the field of muscle research. His later career was devoted to the search for "submolecular" biology, quantum physics that applies to biological processes. He was particularly interested in cancer, and was among the first to explore the relationship between free radical damage and cancer. Szent-Györgyi was awarded the 1937 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for his work in biological oxidation and vitamin C, and the Lasker Award for Basic Medical Research in 1954 contributions to the understanding of cardiovascular disease through research base muscle.
Woods Hole Marine Biological Laboratory Library is in jail, Albert Szent-Gyorgyi Papers, which range from 1894-1995. The collection includes photographs, interviews, oral histories, published articles, lectures and video recordings.
As part of their profiles on the science project of the National Library of Medicine working with the Library of the Woods Hole Marine Biological Laboratory, digitize and make available to the World Wide Web a selection of the Albert Szent-Gyorgyi documents use by teachers and researchers. This site provides access to parts of the Albert Szent-Gyorgyi Papers hole Library Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods, were selected for analysis.

This online exhibit is designed to present the various stages of scientific career Szent-Gyorgyi and professional life. It is divided into sections dealing with the life and scientific contributions Szent-Gyorgyi important. We suggest that new visitors begin with this exhibition, which includes a small selection of documents and visuals, organized within these sections. Each section begins with a "narrative substance," which leads to "Documents" and "Visual".
Visitors will be able to use additional materials for a search in the navigation bar. They can also view the materials alphabetically or chronologically, click Browse the navigation bar. The documents and images on these lists are arranged in the form and then either chronologically or alphabetically by name.
