Born in Stockholm, Sweden, in 1902, Tiselius earned his M.A. in chemistry, physics, and mathematics from the University of Uppsala in 1924. The following year he became an assistant in the research laboratory of the eminent physical chemist Theodor Svedberg (1884-1971) in Uppsala and joined the university faculty in 1930 after receiving his doctorate.
