He shares the Nobel Prize in Physiology/Medicine of 1953 with Sir Hans Krebs "for his discovery of co-enzyme A and its importance for intermediary metabolism".

He joins the research staff of the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, first as a Research Associate in the Department of Surgery, then heading his own group in the Biochemical Research Laboratory of the Hospital. 

Fischer asks Lipmann to accompany him to Copenhagen, which he does in 1932 as Research Associate in the Biological Institute of the Carlsberg Foundation. There Lipmann becomes interested in the metabolism of fibroblasts and this prompts him to investigate the Pasteur effect, which leads to important papers on the mechanism of this reaction and on the part played by glycolysis in the metabolism of the cells of embryos.

Then Lipmann returns to Koenigsberg to study chemistry under Professor Hans Meerwein, who had then succeeded Professor Klinger. 

He takes his M.D. degree (Staatsexamen) in Berlin. 

Lipmann goes back to the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute in Berlin to work as a research assistant in the laboratory of Albert Fischer, who works on applying biochemical methods to tissue culture. 

He works in the laboratory of P. A. Levene at the Rockefeller Institute in New York, where he identifies serine phosphate as the constituent of phosphoproteins which contains the phosphate.

Lipmann dies in Poughkeepsie, New York.

Lipmann becomes Professor of Biological Chemistry at Harvard Medical School, Boston. 

Lipmann becomes Research Associate in the Department of Biochemistry, Cornell Medical School, New York. 

In 1926 he works as an assistant in Otto Meyerhof’s laboratory at the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute, Berlin, to prepare a thesis for the degree of Ph.D., which he takes in 1927.

Fritz Lipmann is born in Koenigsberg which was then Germany (now the city is called Kaliningrad, in Russia).

He is appointed a Member and Professor of the Rockefeller Institute, New York, where he continues working. His research interest turns to the development of the biological mechanism of peptide and protein synthesis.

He takes up biochemistry and holds for a time a Fellowship in the Department of Pharmacology, at the University of Amsterdam, under Professor Ernst Laqueur.

Lipmann studies medicine at the universities of Koenigsberg, Berlin, and Munich. He is, during his pre-clinical year of medical study, strongly impressed by what he has called «a dramatic chemistry course» given by Professor Klinger at Koenigsberg.

He then goes with Meyerhof to Heidelberg, where he does further research on the biochemical reactions occurring in muscle.
