Biography

Carl Rabl (2 May 1853 in Wels, Austria – 24 December 1917 in Leipzig, Germany ) was an Austrian anatomist. His most notable achievement was on the structural consistency of chromosomes during the cell cycle. In 1885 he published that chromosomes do not lose their identity, even though they are no longer visible through the microscope.
As a student, his influences included Rudolf Leuckart at Leipzig, Ernst Wilhelm von Brücke at Vienna and Ernst Haeckel at the University of Jena. In 1886 he became a full professor at the German University in Prague, and in 1904 succeeded Wilhelm His as professor of anatomy at the University of Leipzig. He was in charge of the anatomical institute at Leipzig until his death in 1917.
In 1891 he married Marie Virchow, the daughter of German pathologist Rudolf Virchow. In 1902 he was a nominee for the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine — the prize was, however, awarded to Ronald Ross in 1902 for his work involving malaria.
