Paul-Ehrlich-Institut Company Profile

13:27 EDT 18th September 2018 | BioPortfolio

The Paul-Ehrlich-Institut was founded on 1st June 1896 as Institut für Serumforschung und Serumprüfung (Institute for Serum Research and Serum Testing) at Steglitz near Berlin as a test and research institution. Its name, which it still bears today, was derived from its first director, Paul Ehrlich. His mission was to develop and implement the basic principles of state control of medicines. This mission was initiated against the background of the strongly fluctuating quality and efficacy of the new therapeutic diphtheria anti-serum developed by Emil von Behring. Thus, the basis for the work done by today’s Paul-Ehrlich-Institut, and the criteria for testing the quality, efficacy and safety of medicines originate from the work by Paul Ehrlich and his co-workers. Paul Ehrlich himself developed the standard for evaluating serum products. This work was especially emphasised by the Nobel Prize committee, when they justified the award of the Nobel Prize for medicine to Paul Ehrlich in 1908.
