Otto Fritz Meyerhof (April 12, 1884 - October 6, 1951) was a German doctor and biochemist of Jewish descent.[1] He won the 1922 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine, for finding out how oxygen makes chemical changes in lactic acid in muscles.[2]

In 1940, Meyerhof fled to the United States, where he continued his academic career.
