British scientist who did seminal work on protein denaturation, nutrition, snake toxins and other medical topics. He was the first director of The Lister Institute for Preventative Medicine, serving from 1903 to 1930. His parents were Josiah and Elizabeth Mary Martin. He studied mathematics as a requirement for a future as actuary, but showed no special aptitude. He studied at Birkbeck, University of London, King's College London and St Thomas's Hospital, where he concentrated on physiology. In 1886 he graduated BSc, gaining the gold medal in physiology and a university scholarship which took him to Leipzig to work under Karl Ludwig. After six months he returned to London as demonstrator in biology and physiology and lecturer in comparative anatomy at King's College London (1887–91).
