Irish scientist John Martin Scott, who was Professor of Experimental Nutrition at Trinity College Dublin (TCD), has died aged 72. His career at TCD included advancement to Fellow of TCD (1973), Bursar (1977–80), Personal Chair (1978), Doctor of Science (1981), Member of the Royal Irish Academy (1984) and Senior Fellow, TCD (2005). Though he became an internationally recognized expert on folic acid and its role in metabolism, John entered this field purely by chance. After a PhD at TCD, he began a post-doctoral fellowship with Jesse Rabinowitz in Berkeley, California. However, when shown his assigned project, he asked to work on some- thing different. The subsequent switch to folate metabolism set the course of his career. Returning home, he joined TCD’s new Biochemistry department. At a time when little biomedical research was being done in Ireland, John collaborated with TCD Regius Professor of Medicine Donald Weir to carry out ‘bench-to-bedside’ research, eventually publishing over 100 articles and reviews on folate and vitamin B12 metabolism
