  NationMaster - Encyclopedia: Hans Adolf Krebs
Krebs is best known for his identification of the citric acid cycle, also known as the Krebs cycle, the key sequence of metabolic chemical reactions that produces energy in cells.
Krebs became professor of biochemistry at the University of Sheffield in 1945.
Hans Adolf Krebs won the 1953 Nobel Prize for physiology or medicine, which he shared with American biochemist Fritz Albert Lipmann (1899-1986), for his studies of intermediary metabolism, especially his discovery of the metabolic pathway known as the tricarboxylic acid (TCA) cycle, or Krebs cycle, the major source of energy in living organisms.

 Sir Hans Adolf Krebs
At the University of Freiburg (1932), Krebs discovered (with the German biochemist Kurt Henseleit) a series of chemical reactions (now known as the urea cycle) by which ammonia is converted to urea in mammalian tissue; the urea, far less toxic than ammonia, is subsequently excreted in the urine of most mammals.
In 1937 Krebs demonstrated the existence of a cycle of chemical reactions that combines the end-product of sugar breakdown, later shown to be an "activated" form of the two-carbon acetic acid, with the four-carbon oxaloacetic acid to form citric acid.
Krebs served on the faculty of the University of Oxford from 1954 to 1967.

Krebs researched intermediate metabolism, eventually explaining how foodstuffs are oxidized to produce energy in chemical processes known as the Krebs cycle (also known as the tricarboxylic acid cycle and the citric acid cycle).
Krebs said in his acceptance speech for the Nobel Prize that he became interested in research because he was convinced that “an understanding of the process of energy production will eventually help us in solving some of the practical problems of medicine.”
Hans Adolf Krebs was born in 1900 to a well-educated professional family in Germany.
