Nathan Zuntz: His Life and Work in the Fields of High Altitude Physiology and Aviation Medicine
German physiologist Nathan Zuntz (1847-1920) was a modern mastermind of translational, integrative-organismic physiology and systems biology. With over 700 publications in his physiological oeuvre, Zuntz was one of the most comprehensive researchers published in the German-speaking world. Zuntz's inventions, including the treadmill and the transportable gas meter, became milestones in the history of physiology. This publication provides a comprehensive examination of his working philosophy, while further elucidating why Berlin became a focus point of high altitude physiology and aviation medicine at the turn of the twentieth century.
