Medical Pioneer, Nobel Prize Recipient. He was already an eminent pathologist, graduating from John's Hopkins in 1905, when he discovered that raw liver fed to chronically bled dogs could reverse the effects of pernicious anaemia through haemoglobin renewal. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Physiology and Medicine jointly with physicians George R. Minot and William P. Murphy, who developed a treatment for the disease from his research and experiments.
