  Robert Koch - Biography
Robert Koch was born on December 11, 1843, at Clausthal in the Upper Harz Mountains.

Koch was the recipient of many prizes and medals, honorary doctorates of the Universities of Heidelberg and Bologna, honorary citizenships of Berlin, Wollstein and his native Clausthal, and honorary memberships of learned societies and academies in Berlin, Vienna, Posen, Perugia, Naples and New York.

 Koch's postulates - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Koch's postulates (or Henle-Koch postulates) are four criteria that were formulated by Robert Koch in 1884 and refined and published by him in 1890.
According to Koch, all four must be fulfilled in order to establish a causal relationship between a parasite and a disease.
However, it must be noted that Koch abandoned the second part of the first postulate altogether when he discovered asymptomatic carriers of cholera (Koch, 1893) and later, Typhoid Mary.

 Robert Koch - MSN Encarta
Robert Koch (1843-1910), German scientist and Nobel laureate, who founded modern medical bacteriology, isolated several disease-causing bacteria, including those of tuberculosis, and discovered the animal vectors of a number of major diseases.
Koch's first major breakthrough in bacteriology occurred in the 1870s, when he demonstrated that the infectious disease anthrax developed in mice only when the disease-bearing material injected into a mouse's bloodstream contained viable rods or spores of Bacillus anthracis.
Koch's isolation of the anthrax bacillus was of momentous import, because this was the first time that the causative agent of an infectious disease had been demonstrated beyond a reasonable doubt.

The creation and spread of the modern germ theory of fermentation and disease was largely the work of three mid-19th-century scientists: the chemically oriented Louis Pasteur (1822–1895), the surgeon Joseph Lister (1827–1912), and the physician Robert Koch (1843–; 1910).
In 1881, Koch introduced the use of jellylike culture media that allowed the growth of only a single species of bacteria; this greatly facilitated the study of bacteria and the means to control them.
Taken together, Koch's technical expertise in staining, microscopy, microphotography, and culture growth and purification allowed him to isolate and identify the particular microorganisms that produced most of the common diseases that had killed surgical victims before the time of Lister, as well as the anthrax bacillus and the tuberculosis bacillus.
