Dr. Kinyoun Forefather of the NIH
Dr. Kinyoun founded in 1887 the Hygienic Laboratory on Staten Island, N. Y., to diagnose cholera, plague, smallpox and other diseases that posed significant threats to public health at the time. In this one-man, one-room laboratory Dr. Kinyoun (1860 to 1919) laid the foundation for what today are 27 institutes and centers of the National Institutes of Health. However, few people recognize Dr. Kinyoun's legendary contributions or the hardships he endured as a result of his work. In a review published in the American Society for Microbiology two NIH researchers Dr. Morens and Dr. Fauci aim to change that. You will find below the citations to the article:
