Many outstanding professors worked at the university in the inter-war period, including Nobel Prize winner Albert Szent-Györgyi, who was first to isolate vitamin C, extracting it from the Szeged paprika. After world war II, the University of Szeged was the first in Hungary to start functioning anew.
