Biographical history

Boris Babkin was a professor of physiology at Dalhousie University from 1924-1928. Born in Kursk, Russia, in 1877, he studied under Ivan P. Pavlov in his laboratory at the Institute of Experimental Medicine until 1912. He taught animal physiology at the Agricultural Institute of Novo Alexandria, and in 1915 he was appointed professor of physiology at the University of Odessa. In 1922 he left Russia due to political reasons and came to Halifax via London, England. He remained at Dalhousie until 1928, when he accepted a position at McGill University, where he served as department chair (1940-1941) and research fellow in physiology (1942-1947). The year before his death in 1950, he was awarded the Julius Friedenwal Medal by the American Gastroenterological Association.
