Carl Peter Henrik Dam was born on February 21, 1895, in Copenhagen, Denmark. He was a biochemist and physiologist known for his pioneering research on vitamin K. Dam received his M.D. from the University of Copenhagen in 1920 and later earned his Ph.D. in biochemistry from the same university in 1928.

Dam's groundbreaking work on vitamin K began in 1929 when he discovered the vitamin's role in blood clotting.
