Dr. Rudolf Höber

Rudolf Höber (27 December 1873 in Stettin, Germany – 5 September 1953 in Philadelphia, USA) was a German physician-investigator in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.


He wrote the book Lehrbuch der Physiologie des Menschen (Handbook for Human Physiology),[1] Physikalische Chemie der Zelle Und der Gewebe (Physical Chemistry of Cells and Tissues), and he first hypothesized the beta dispersion in suspended red blood cells, later generalized to muscle tissue.[2][3][4][5][6]
