Personal Fact of Gerty Cori

Gerty Theresa Radnitz Cori is the first woman in America to win the Nobel Prize for Physiology and Medicine, an honour she shared with her fellow researcher and spouse Carl F. Cori. Born in Prague, she was home-schooled till the age of ten, after which she was admitted to Lyceum for girls. After her graduation she studied at Tetschen Realgymnasium after qualifying the University’s entrance examination.

She entered the Medical School in the University of Prague and received her doctorate in Medicine. Then she spent two years in Carolinen Children’s Hospital, before moving to America along with her husband Carl. After working together in Buffalo, she joined him as a Research Associate when he moved to St. Loius. Later she was made a Professor of Biochemistry there. When they were in Roswell, they were discouraged to work together, but that did not stop them from their scientific endeavours which is proven by the fifty papers they published together in Roswell.

The Coris had collaborated on research work from their student days as they had a mutual interest in preclinical sciences. They researched on how sugar or glucose is metabolised. The Cori cycle which explained the movement of energy in the body was the ground breaking theory for which they got the Nobel Prize.
