Hide Profile

Minot (Harvard, S.D. 1878) began teaching at Harvard in 1880 and was appointed James Stillman Professor of Comparative Anatomy at Harvard Medical School in 1905, a position he held until his death. Early in his career he did studies of insects and described new species; his interest expanded to comparative anatomy, morphology and growth; and his work included physiological experimentation on effects of anesthesia, reaction to tetanus, and the nature of muscular contractions. His research in human embryology led to the invention of microtomes. His broad biological interests were combined with refinements of laboratory techniques.
