He received a doctorate from the University of Szeged in 1923. Frigyes Riesz(1880-1956) His theorem, now called the Riesz-Fischer theorem, which he proved in 1907, is fundamental in the Fourier analysisof Hilbert space; Riesz representation theorem, F. and M.

[http://www.math.u-szeged.hu/publikac/acta/acta.htm] Camille Sandorfy(b. 1920) Canadianquantum chemist. He is a member of the International Academy of Quantum Molecular Science. He is well known for both his works in spectroscopyand theoretical chemistry. He is a pioneer in the molecular orbitalcalculations on saturated hydrocarbonsand excited aromaticmolecules. He performed extensive works in both vibrational and electronic spectroscopy. He investigated in particular the effect of hydrogen bondingon the anharmonicity of vibrations. He made also applications of biological interest. He received his Bachelor of Sciencein 1943 and Ph.D. in chemistry in 1946 from the University of Szeged. Brúnó F. Straub(1914-1996) Initiated the foundation of the Biological Research Center (1971). Albert Szent-Györgyi(1893-1986) Nobel-Prize laureate biochemist; He noted the anti-scorbutic activity of ascorbic acidand discovered that paprika ("capsicum annuum") was a rich source of vitamin C; he received the Nobel-Prize in medicine in 1937 "for his discoveries in connection with the biological combustion processes, with special reference to vitamin C and the catalysis of fumaric acid"; vitamin P. In 1930 he obtained the Chair of Medical Chemistry at the University of Szeged and in 1935 he also took the Chair in Organic Chemistry; from 1987-2000 the Szeged Medical University bore his name.
