Communication <ul><li>The invention of the telegraph meant that experiments like at Pouilly-le-Fort were communicated quickly. </li></ul><ul><li>The media (newspapers and journals) also meant that news was spread quickly. </li></ul><ul><li>The railways allowed scientists and doctors to meet more frequently to discuss matters. </li></ul>
  6. 6. So, what helped Koch and Pasteur? Communication Science and Technology Personal Qualities Research Techniques Chance War
  7. 7. Research Techniques <ul><li>Both men used research teams to great effect. </li></ul><ul><li>They also used scientific methods to prove theories with countless re-tests of their work before it would be seen as proven. </li></ul>
  8. 8. So, what helped Koch and Pasteur? Communication Science and Technology Personal Qualities Research Techniques Chance War
  9. 9. Personal Qualities <ul><li>Pasteur and Koch had very similar qualities. </li></ul><ul><li>Both were determined and wanted to prove themselves. </li></ul><ul><li>They both risked their careers in the pursuit of their ideas and theories – Koch’s was damaged by the TB Vaccine that failed. </li></ul>
