ABSTRACT
Krogh, Schack August Steenberg (1874-1949) was a Danish physiologist and zoologist who won the Nobel Prize in physiology or medicine in 1920 for his discoveries regarding the regulating mechanisms of the small blood vessels, or capillaries. He was particularly interested in the mechanisms by which the circulatory system controls the supply of oxygen within bodily tissue, a focus that grew out of his early studies of respiration.
