Paul Gyorgy was a Hungarian-American pediatrician who helped discover three vitamins–riboflavin (B-2), pyridoxine (B-6), and biotin–while working in Heidelberg, Germany, Cambridge, England, and Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio.

At the University of Pennsylvania, Gyorgy studied the microflora of breast-fed infants and was an ardent proponent of the superiority of breast milk for infant feeding.
