  Rudolph Albert Von Kolliker - LoveToKnow Watches
RUDOLPH ALBERT VON KOLLIKER (1817-1905), Swiss anatomist and physiologist, was born at Zurich on the 6th of July 1817.
Kolliker's name will ever be associated with that of the tool with which during his long life he so assiduously and successfully worked, the microscope.
Lastly, Kolliker was in his earlier years professor of physiology as well as of anatomy; and not only did his histological labours almost always carry physiological lessons, but he also enriched physiology with the results of direct researches of an experimental kind, notably those on curare and some other poisons.

The work of the French anatomist and physiologist Marie François Xavier Bichat in the systematic study of human tissue was a foundation stone of the science of histology.
The culmination of this remarkable series of investigations is found in the work of the German pathologist Rudolf Virchow, whose doctrine that the cell is the seat of disease remains the cornerstone of modern medical science.
Pasteur's method of immunization by injecting attenuated virus was used successfully in the treatment of rabies, and the German bacteriologist Emil Adolph von Behring developed immunizing serums against diphtheria and tetanus.

 The X-ray Century
After a discussion of his experiments, Dr. Roentgen invited Dr. Albert von Kolliker, a famous anatomist, who was chairing the session, to have his hand photographed with the new rays.
von Kolliker led the audience in three cheers for Dr. Roentgen and proposed that the new rays be designated as "Roentgen's Rays".
The x-ray picture of von Kolliker's hand can be viewed from Wurzburg on the World Wide Web.

Johann von Oppolzer was a professor who took special interest in Politzer.
This was done while he worked in the Vienna laboratory of the physiologist Carl Ludwig and was under the added influence of Hermann von Helmholz in Heidelberg, Claude Bernard in Paris, and Karl Rudolf Konig.
Later, under the tutelage of Rudolf Albert von Kolliker and Joseph Toynbee in Wurzburg, Politzer learned microscopy.

 Roentgen And The Disovery of X-Rays
He worked in isolation, telling a friend simply, "I have discovered something interesting, but I do not know whether or not my observations are correct." In fact, one wonders if Roentgen's experiments were as much to convince himself of the reality of his observations as to enhance the scientific data supporting the phenomenon.
On 28 December 1895 Roentgen gave his preliminary report "Uber eine neue Art von Strahlen" to the president of the Wurzburg Physical-Medical Society, accompanied by experimental radiographs and by the image of his wife's hand.

 Ernst Haeckel
Ernst Haeckel was born in Prussia in 1834 to well-educated, Protestant parents who raised him on the Romantic poetry of Friedrich Schiller and the natural philosophy of Wolfgang von Goethe.
When he enrolled in medical school at Wurzburg in 1852, he came into contact with some of the scientific greats of the day, including pathologist Rudolf Virchow, a pioneer of cell theory, and Albert von Kolliker, a distinguished physiologist who introduced him to microscopic work.
Still, Haeckel disliked medical school and nurtured fantasies of a career in marine biology; whenever possible, he found ways to take off on specimen-collecting trips to the seashore.

 1.2.1.10
Physiologists stressed organ and tissue function -- Claude Bernard (1813-1878) emphasized the experimental method in establishing biological knowledge and urged that medical practice should be grounded in such knowledge.
Histology was raised to the status of an independent science by the Swiss microanatomist Albert von Kolliker (1817-1905), who wrote the first textbook on the subject, Handbuch der Gewebelehre des Menschen (Handbook of the Tissues of Man) (1852).
Since Kolliker and Virchow, the study of the intimate structure and workings of the cells themselves, as distinct from the tissues, has become a separate science, cytology, further extended to the study of cells in disease, or cytopathology (Chapter 21).
