We are here today to celebrate Karl Landsteiner and his work, and how it seems one hundred years later. That’s odd, really. Landsteiner himself would never have expected it; he was a man who never felt he was a success. Well educated in the best laboratories of his time, enormously hard working and productive, he left Vienna in 1919, when he realised that he would never get his chair, and never direct his own institute.
