Robison Robert (1883-1941)
British biochemist. Robison was appointed to the staff of the Lister Institute of Preventive Medicine in London in 1913. He began research in the products of yeast fermentation. Within a short time he successfully isolated glucose-6-phosphate, which came to be known also as the Robison ester. In 1923 he announced the discovery of the enzyme phosphatase in aqueous extracts of bones of young, rapidly growing animals. He published a volume on the significance of phosphoric esters in metabolism in 1932.
