expand icon Biographical/Historical Note
Ruth Silberberg was a pathologist, 1906-1997. Silberberg was born in Germany and received her medical degree from the University of Breslau in 1931. She trained in pathology at the University until 1934, when she and her husband, Martin Silberberg, MD, fled to Canada to escape emerging Nazism. They conducted research in pathology at Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia until 1936, when they moved to St. Louis to join the Department of Pathology at the Washington University School of Medicine. After a four-year fellowship at New York University from 1941 to 1944, the Silberbergs returned to Washington University as instructors in Pathology. They often collaborated on research, particularly the study of aging and degenerative arthritis, until Martin Silberberg's death in 1966. In 1968 Ruth Silberberg was named professor of Pathology and professor emeritus in 1975. She then emigrated to Israel where she remained active in medical research until her death.
