This method and its subsequent applications had an enormous impact on basic research, medicine and the biotech industry. In the same year, Kohler became one of the directors of the Max-Planck-Institute for Immunobiology in Freiburg; his unfortunate premature death in 1995 set an end to his extraordinary career. Prof. Klaus Eichmann, who had invited Kohler to become his codirector, is one of the people who were closest to him." "This scientific biography commemorates the 10th anniversary of Kohler's untimely death. Kohler's scientific achievements are explained in a way to make them understandable for the general public and discussed in the historical context of immunological research."--Jacket." ;
