Heinrich Dreser (1860 – December 21, 1924 ) was a German chemist responsible for the aspirin and heroin projects at Bayer AG. He was also a key figure in creating the widely used modern drug Codeine.

Arthur Eichengrün made the claim, yet unproven, that credit for the discovery of aspirin were stolen from him by Dreser. [1]
