Name of creator
Albert Roos was born in 1914 in Leiden, The Netherlands. He trained as a physician in both Holland and the United States. He took a position with the Washington University School of Medicine in 1946 and remained there until his retirement in 1992. Roos was originally a fellow in cardiology, then an instructor in physiology. He became director of the thoracic physiology lab in the Division of Cardiothoracic Surgery, and joined the Division of Anesthesiology and later joined the Department of Physiology at the invitation of then department chairman, Dr. Cuyler (Cuy) Hunt. There he did pioneering research on intracellular pH, for which he became internationally renowned. When Roos retired, he ended a 44-year grant from the National Institutes of Health, at that time the longest continuously funded research grant in the agency's history.
