Helmut Zahn (* June 13, 1916 in Erlangen; † November 14, 2004 in Aachen) was a German chemist who is often credited as the first to synthesize Insulin in 1963. His results synthesizing insulin were achieved almost simultaneously with that of Panayotis Katsoyannis at the University of Pittsburgh. His work was not honoured by the Nobel prize because in 1958 Frederick Sanger was the first who discovered the chemical structure of Insulin.

dbo:abstract
  • Helmut Zahn (* 13. Juni 1916 in Erlangen; † 14. November 2004 in Aachen) war ein deutscher Chemiker, der durch die erste Synthese von Insulin (1963) bekannt wurde. Voraussetzung für die Synthese war die Aufklärung der Insulinsstruktur, die 1955 von Frederick Sanger publiziert wurde, der dafür 1958 mit dem Nobelpreis geehrt wurde. (de)
  • Helmut Zahn (*13 juin 1916, à Erlangen, † 14 novembre 2004 à Aix-la-Chapelle) était un chimiste allemand. Il est connu pour avoir été l'un des tout premiers chimistes à réaliser la synthèse de l'insuline (1963). Ses travaux portant sur la synthèse de l'insuline ont, en effet, abouti de manière presque simultanée avec ceux du chercheur américain Panayotis Katsoyannis de l'Université de Pittsburgh. Le prix Nobel de Chimie auquel il aurait pu prétendre ne lui a toutefois pas été décerné, car un prix Nobel avait déjà été attribué en 1958 dans ce domaine de recherche au Britannique Frederick Sanger pour des travaux portant notamment sur la structure de l'insuline. Helmut Zahn a (co)-signé plus de 700 publications. (fr)

Helmut Zahn studied chemistry at the University of Karlsruhe (TH) and received his PhD in 1940. He habilitated at the University of Heidelberg and became director of the Deutsches Wollforschungsinstitut at the RWTH Aachen University in 1952. (en)
