Abstract:

For anyone interested in the origin of the fields of experimental medicine and bacteriology, this book will prove of great value. Robert Koch's story is a stirring example of how a lone country doctor can rise above all odds to become a true scientific revolutionary. Koch was the founder of the discipline of bacteriology, and his work formed the basis for all modern ideas of hygiene and public health. Given the Nobel Prize for his discovery of the cause of tuberculosis, Robert Koch made major contributions to tropical medicine, immunology, and veterinary medicine. He was also a world traveler and made numerous, important research expeditions to India (where he discovered the cause of cholera), Africa, and New Guinea.
