|Contribution||Introduced term "streptococcus."|
|Notes||Gave the name to germs arranged in pairs or chains and seen in septic wounds. He lumped them with other forms as a single organism, "cocco-bacteria septica," but made no advance on Lister's concept of etiology of wound infections (and perhaps retreated from it).|
