E. J. Conway

E. J. Conway

Professor Edward J. Conway (1894–1965) was an Irish biochemist.

Conway was one of Ireland's most distinguished scientists; he was a world authority on electrolyte physiology, and in general on the physiology of the inorganic constituents of living tissue. He published over 120 papers, as well as two books: "Microdiffusion Analysis and Volumetric Error" and "The Biochemistry of Gastric Acid Secretion".

In 1934 he was appointed to University College Dublin's new Department of Biochemistry and Pharmacology as its first Professor, a post he held until 1963.

He was a Fellow of the Royal Society, and in 1967 he was the recipient of the prestigious Royal Dublin Society's Boyle Medal.

UCD's new Conway Institute of Biomolecular and Biomedical Research, which opened in August 2003, was named in his honour.
