Ferdinand Hueppe (1902)


German bacteriologist remembered for his pioneering investigations of hormesis in regards to chemical stimulation/inhibition of bacterial growth. The eponymous "Hueppe’s rule" is an historical term synonymous with hormesis.

From 1872 to 1876, Hueppe studied medicine at the University of Berlin, afterwards serving as a military surgeon. From 1880 to 1884 he was a member of bacteriologist Robert Koch's staff in Berlin, and later worked at Carl Remigius Fresenius' institute (the Chemischen Institut Fresenius) in Wiesbaden. From 1889 to 1912 he was a professor at Charles University in Prague.

From 1900 to 1904, he was the first Deutscher Fußball-Bund (DFB, German Football Association) president.

He died on 15 September 1938 in Dresden, Germany, aged 86.
