ROBERT KOCH AND HIS ACHIEVEMENTS

JAMA. 2010;303(21):2197. doi:10.1001/jama.2010.653

Robert Koch, once a country doctor, the discoverer of the bacillus of tuberculosis, and with the immortal Pasteur, the founder of bacteriology, and of the germ theory of infectious diseases, died May 27, 1910. In what better way can we honor the memory of this preeminent man and benefactor of the human race, at this time and in this place, than by recalling, even if only in an incomplete and fragmentary fashion, some of the principal results of his life and work so that we may realize more fully than perhaps is the case in general what the world owes to him!
