Georges KAhler was one of the most prominent German scientists
of recent history. In 1984, at an age of 38, he received the Nobel
Prize in Physiology or Medicine, together with N.K. Jerne and C.
Milstein, for inventing the technique for generating monoclonal
antibodies. This method and its subsequent applications had an
enormous impact on basic research, medicine and the biotech
industry. In the same year, KAhler became one of the directors of
the Max-Planck-Institute of Immunobiology in Freiburg; his
unfortunate premature death in 1995 set an end to his extraordinary
career. Prof. Klaus Eichmann, who had invited KAhler to become his
codirector, is one of the people who were closest to him.
This scientific biography commemorates the 10th anniversary of
KAhler's untimely death. KAhler's scientific achievements are
explained in a way to make them understandable for the general
public and discussed in the historical context of immunological
