Synge, Richard Laurence Millington

Synge, Richard Laurence Millington
▪ 1995

      British biochemist (b. Oct. 28, 1914, Liverpool, England—d. Aug. 18, 1994, Norwich, Norfolk, England), shared the 1952 Nobel Prize for Chemistry with Archer J.P. Martin for their work in the development of partition chromatography, a sophisticated analytic technique by which samples of a mixture of closely related chemicals such as amino acids can be separated for identification and further study. In his most important individual research, Synge determined the sequence of amino acids that make up the antibiotic gramicidin S. Synge studied classics at Winchester College and then switched to the natural sciences at Trinity College, Cambridge (Ph.D., 1941). He spent his entire professional career as an active researcher, first with Martin under the auspices of the Wool Industries Research Association, Leeds (1941-43), and later on his own at the Lister Institute of Preventive Medicine, London (1943-48), the Rowett Research Institute, near Aberdeen, Scotland (1948-67), and the Food Research Institute, Norwich (1967-76). He was also an honorary professor at the University of East Anglia (1968-84). Synge was elected a fellow of the Royal Society in 1950.
