20/02/1937 German biochemist Robert Huber is born

He is known because of his research of photosynthesis. Huber described the reaction centre of photosynthesis in purple bacteria, together with other Germans Johann Deisenhofer and Hartmut Michel. This led to the understanding of more complex analogue of photosynthesis in cyanobacteria which is essentially the same as that in chloroplasts of higher plants.
