From Intestine Transport to Enzymatic Regulation: The Works of the Spanish Biochemist Alberto Sols (1917--1989) (2000)


In this paper the scientific trajectory of Spanish influential biochemist Alberto Sols (1917--1989) is presented in comparative perspective. His social and academic environment, his research training under the Cori's in the US in the early 1950s and his works when coming back to Spain to develop his own scientific career are described in order to present the central argument of this paper on his path from physiological research to research on enzymatic regulation. Sols' main contributions were both scientific and academic. He and his collaborators not only contributed to biological knowledge on the biochemistry of metabolic regulation but to the active reception of biochemistry in the Spanish academia and to update of Spanish medical education.
