The University of Sheffield was granted a Royal Charter in May 1905.Important discoveries in medicine at Sheffield include studies by Edward Mellanby (Professor of Pharmacology) in the 1920's that established that cod liver oil prevented rickets, so helping to eradicate the disease. Sir Hans Krebs (Professor of Biochemistry) discovered the mechanism by which cells release energy, now known as the Krebs Cycle, work for which he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Medicine or Physiology in 1953.
