   schema:description ""Starling was much more than a gifted scientist. He held passionate views on many subjects - education, the medical establishment, London University, Germany, the British Government - and was not slow to voice them. Time has shown most of his views to be right, but their publication certainly hampered his worldly success. Working on defense against poison gas during WWI, he crossed swords with the war office. After resigning his commission as colonel, he became chairman of the committee supervising British nutrition and successfully introduced food rationing. Prodigiously energetic, he also designed and developed the medical school at University College."--Jacket."@en ;
