Abstract:

It had become increasingly apparent to Koch that it would be impossible to satisfy his scientific aspirations in Wollstein. By July 1880 Koch was in Berlin, beginning an exciting new position. The letter of nomination included the names of distinguished professors of the medical faculty, as well as the Dean and the Rector of the University. After much worry about whether this was the right move, Koch agreed to take this position and moved with his family to Breslau in July 1879. In July 1880, Koch moved to Berlin, the head of a newly established laboratory for bacteriological research. When the German states were brought together by Otto von Bismarck in 1871 as the German Empire, Berlin became its capital. This was to become Robert Koch's first laboratory in Berlin. However, the position Struck had engineered at this time was primarily honorary, and Koch would still have had to practice medicine in Berlin to make ends meet. For the rest of his life, Struck took great pride in telling everyone that it was he, Struck, who had discovered Koch and brought him to Berlin.
