(1929 - 1971)
KORNER, ASHER (7 February 1929–22 September 1971), biochemist. Following war service in the RAF he completed his education at Trinity College Cambridge (PhD, 1954), and was Director of Studies in Biochemistry at Clare College, Cambridge (Fellow, 1960) and a university lecturer (1960–7). In 1967 he became the first Professor of Biochemistry at the University of Sussex, where his own research methods became widely emulated. He investigated the actions of growth hormone and insulin, the mechanism of control of the synthesis of protein and nucleic acid in mammalian tissues, and the influence of hormones on these processes. He is commemorated at the University of Sussex by the Asher Korner Memorial Lecture and the Korner Travelling Fellowship Fund.
