Friedrich Otto Vogel (March 6, 1925, Berlin – August 5, 2006, Heidelberg) was a German human geneticist. Together with Arno Motulsky he established in 1964 the journal Human Genetics, of which he remained editor-in-chief for more than 25 years.[1] He was a member of the Heidelberger Akademie der Wissenschaften.[2] In 1962, Vogel was named professor of human genetics and founding chair of the Institute of Anthropologie and Human Genetics at Heidelberg University.[3] Vogel became the leading German human geneticist and played a significant role in the rehabilitation of this field after the misuse of genetics by the Nazi regime (1932-1945).[4]
