Otto Rosenheim (1871-1955) and Christine Rosenheim (1868-1953)

Biochemists Otto Rosenheim and his wife Christine Rosenheim (nee Mary Christine Tebb), came to NIMR relatively late in their careers in 1923. They had worked at King’s College London for many years, publishing separately and then jointly on a variety of topics in physiology and biochemistry. They married in 1910, and worked together on cholesterol in the brain and on the substance spermine. They retired from King’s but were then invited by Dale to join NIMR as voluntary workers to do research with Harold Dudley. Otto Rosenheim later made valuable contributions to work on the structure of steroids and on vitamin D. He left NIMR on 31 March 1945.
