ABSTRACT
Background information on German physician, bacteriologist and Nobel laureate Robert Koch is presented. The author reviews how Koch is remembered as one of the founders of medical bacteriology. His work was responsible for the acceptance of laboratory science into medical practice. His criteria for the relationship between parasites and disease, known as "Koch's postulates," are still used in the study of infectious diseases. Information on Koch's early life and education is reviewed.
