Paul Ehrlich and the Foundations of Autoimmunity

Conference paper


An invitation to convene a symposium on autoimmunity in Berlin warrants a célébration of one of the principal architects of immunology, Paul Ehrlich. The occasion is appropriate, for it is now almost 100 years since Ehrlich was invited by Robert Koch to join him in the new Institute for Infectious Diseases in Berlin, where Ehrlich first applied his talents to problems of immunology.
