Victor Percy Whittaker (11 June 1919 - 5 July 2016) was a British biochemist. In 1960 he isolated presynaptic nerve terminals from their axons. He named these detached nerve terminals synaptosomes. He showed that intact synaptic vesicles of high purity can be isolated from lysed synaptosomes. He attended the first International Symposium on Cholinergic Mechanisms (1970) (Skokloster, Sweden) and was an active member of the International Advisory Board for many years. An obituary paper by Herbert Zimmermann and Frode Fonnum retraces his achievements.
