Biographies of Scots and Scots Descendants (D) Dick, Thomas
Dick was Chief, CSIRO Division of
Nutritional Biochemistry 1965-76. His discovery of the metabolic
interrelation of molybdenum, copper and sulphate led a number of overseas
scientists to study trace element nutrition involving mineral
interrelations. He also undertook intensive study into the chemistry of
the pyrrolizidine alkaloids and their mode of action in giving rise to
liver damage, particularly in ruminants.
