No medical researcher more worthy of the Prize than Koch, who is still actively conducting research. Work on bacteriology in the 1880s, tuberculin, discovery of the spirillum of cholera, work on malaria.
A supplement to the evaluation of R. Koch by Carl Sundberg was made by Ernst Almquist.
University: Originally the "Königlich Preußisches Institut für Infektionskrankheiten" or "Institut für Infektions-Krankheiten",
the name was in 1912 changed to "Das Robert Koch-Institut".
