Boris Petrovitch Babkin, M.D., D.Sc, LL.D (Russian: Бори́с Петро́вич Ба́бкин

) (5 January 1877 – 3 May 1950) was a Russian-born physiologist, who worked in Russia, England and Canada.

Career Edit

Babkin graduated from the Military Medical Academy, St. Petersburg, with a Doctor of Medicine degree in 1904.[1] He held professorships at the Novo-Alexandria Agricultural Institute and the University of Odessa[2], before being imprisoned and exiled from Russia in 1922, due to his criticism of the October Revolution.[3]

He then spent two years in England, working at University College London under Ernest Starling[3] , before joining Dalhousie University, Nova Scotia, as Professor of Physiology.[2]

In 1928 Babkin became a research professor at McGill University, Montreal, where he spent the remainder of his career. He chaired the Physiology department between 1940 and 1941, and following his retirement was invited to become Research Fellow of Neurosurgery by Wilder Penfield; a position he held until his death in 1950.[3]
