Background note

Britton Chance was was a biochemist and biophysicist as well as a pioneer in the field of biomedical optics. Chance received his Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry from the University of Pennsylvania in 1940 and his Ph.D. in Biology and Physiology from Cambridge University in 1942. Over the course of his nearly eight decade career, Chance was dedicated to the application and transfer of basic scientific research and technology to clinical medicine.

Born in Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania in 1913, Chance came from a family with a rich engineering background. His grandfather, Henry Martyn Chance, authored the Second Geological Survey of the State of Pennsylvania which was largely focused on the coal and petroleum resources of the state. His father, Edwin Chance, invented a device that used chemical reactions to detect carbon monoxide in coal mines. The Chance family spent summers on the New Jersey shore and were avid sailors, introducing Britton to sailing at a young age. It would continue to be an important aspect throughout his long life. Drawing on his family's engineering aptitude, as a young man Chance designed and developed a new device to automatically steer ships. He was later hired by British General Electric to test his device on a round trip voyage to New Zealand in the late 1930s. Chance's automatic steering device was awarded a patent in 1937, the first of many that he would obtain throughout his career.

Chance enrolled as an undergraduate in engineering at the University of Pennsylvania in 1931, graduating with a Bachelor's degree in physical chemistry in 1935 and a Master's degree in microbiology in 1936. During his undergraduate work Chance took a wide variety of science and engineering courses in which he discovered an aptitude and love for experimentation and basic scientific research. He went on to work with Martin Kilpatrick at the University of Pennsylvania for his Ph.D. in physical chemistry. During his work he was able to use one of the first mechanical computers in the United States to solve differential equations associated with the Michaelis-Menten mathematical model of enzyme kinetics. According to Chance, it was the first time the computer had been used to study a biochemical reaction.[3] He received his degree in 1940 for the development of stopped-flow methodology and work on enzyme kinetics. Britton's Ph.D. at the University of Pennsylvania led to the confirmation of the Michaelis-Menten-Henri theory of the role of intermediate compounds in enzyme action.

Chance traveled to England to install his automated steering device on the MS New Zealand Star. This opportunity, coupled with his desire to compliment his pursuit of a physical chemistry doctorate with research abroad, landed Chance at Cambridge University where he wished to study the Hartridge-Roughton-Millikan rapid flow apparatus.Working with Glenn A. Millikan, Chance improved and miniaturized the stop flow apparatus, designed and constructed a spectrophotometer, and studied the enzyme intermediate of peroxidase. As the threat of war loomed, Chance was forced to leave Cambridge. However, he continued working toward his second Ph.D. under the guidance of F.J.W. Roughton, who had moved from Cambridge to Harvard during the war.

At the behest of Louis Ridenour, Chance joined the Radiation Laboratory (Rad Lab) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (M.I.T.) in the summer of 1941. With his background in engineering he quickly came to be the head of the Precision Circuits Section and played a major role in the design and development of the SCR-584 radar and anti-aircraft gun laying system, the Long Range Navigation (LORAN) system, and the H2X/APA-44 bombing computer. He would go on to be the author and edit volumes 19, 20, and 21 of the MIT Radiation Lab Series of books documenting the work done during the war.

During his time at the Rad Lab, Chance was also involved with the development of technologies that would be contributing factors to the emergence of digital computers. He worked with J. Presper Eckert, of ENIAC fame, to spread knowledge gained at the Rad Lab. He aided in calculating new ballistic tables using radar advancements and the ENIAC at the Naval Proving Grounds in Virginia.[8] Chance would continue to be at the forefront of computer usage and used the EDVAC, successor to the ENIAC, computer to perform calculations on enzyme research in the 1950s.

After the War, Chance travelled to Stockholm, Sweden on a Guggenheim Fellowship to work with renowned chemist Hugo Theorell at the Nobel Medical Institute. Using the flow apparatus and spectrophotometer to investigate the mode and nature of action enzymes, Chance and Theorell discovered the process by which an enzyme metabolizes alcohol and dubbed the Theorell-Chance mechanism. Chance's development of a dual wavelength spectrophotometer made it possible to observe the enzyme-substrate combination and the reaction with alcohol. This successful collaboration produced seven papers on enzyme substrate compounds, published in the Journal of Biological Chemistry, and also led to Theorell's 1955 Nobel Prize. Chance went on to learn crystallography with Max Perutz and worked with Don de Vault on electron tunneling in biological reactions.[9] He also continued to indulge his passions for sailing while in Sweden, later going on to win the Coppa Giovanelli in Genoa in 1952 as well as the gold medal in sailing (5.5-meter class) during the Helsinki Summer Olympics of the same year.

Chance returned to the University of Pennsylvania and became the director of the Eldridge Reeves Johnson Foundation in 1949. From there he oversaw the growth of the molecular biochemistry and molecular biology fields as well as the birth of biophysics. He attributed the initial post-war success to a confluence of events. First, the work done during World War II that produced the equipment and apparatuses enabling new advancements was initially prohibited from publication, this resulted in little to no competition as a very small number of people had the knowledge to do the work that Chance was pursuing. Additionally, the post-Sputnik Cold War mindset in the United States resulted in an abundance of funding for basic scientific and technological research to compete with the Soviet Union and Chance had ample resources from the National Science Foundation and National Institute of Health. His work upon returning from Sweden continued to focus on enzymology, as well as expanding into mitochondrial studies, and he was "inundated by post-doctorals from every country you could name". The pioneering studies conducted under Chance's guidance in the 1950s and 1960s produced groundbreaking insights into the functions of enzymes with the then controversial concept of "transferability"; a methodology that studies an organelle in vitro (in a test tube or other controlled state) and demonstrates that it functions the same way in vivo (in the living organism).

As part of an expansionary effort and a new consideration of how labs should operate, in the early 1960s, Chance collaborated with the prominent Philadelphia architect Louis Kahn in the design of the Richards Medical Research Laboratory building, completed in 1965, on the University of Pennsylvania campus. Chance continued to advance instrumentation and create new apparatuses throughout his career. In the 1970s he worked on respiratory electron transfer, nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, and near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy. Chance continued to make novel discoveries related to cell respiratory functions and he explored metabolic controls with pioneering usage of NMR techniques. Britton Chance was awarded professor emeritus status at the University of Pennsylvania in 1983 and continued his research as the head of the Eldridge Reeves Johnson Foundation with a special focus on clinical studies. He applied his knowledge of optics to the physics of light diffusion in living tissue, using near-infrared to measure oxy- and deoxyhemoglobin in muscles and brain function. These optical methodologies had numerous applications including locating tumors and cancerous tissues, non-invasive observation of brain injuries, identifying internal bleeding, and observing muscle activity. Chance's inquiries into the functioning of the brain using optical methods continued through the end of his career. In the early 2000s, this method was being employed to study how the brain solves problems and, after September 11, 2001, Chance worked with "DARPA and other agencies to develop…imaging to the deceitful, malevolent mind."

Chance was the recipient of numerous awards and high honours throughout his life including the Heineken Medal (1970), the National Medal of Science (1974), and the Benjamin Franklin Medal for Distinguished Achievement in the Sciences (1990). He was elected to the National Academy of Sciences (1954), the American Philosophical Society (1958), the Wistar Association (1969), and the Royal Society (1981). Britton Chance died on November 16, 2010 at the age of 97.
