Rufus Ivory Cole served as the the director and physician-in-charge (1909-1937) of the Hospital of the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research, the first hospital in the United States devoted primarily to the investigation of disease. Cole's medical research centered on problems relating to immunity to diseases of the respiratory system, particularly pneumonia

In 1666 Grand Duke Ferdinando II appointed Redi as his first physician and director of the grand-ducal "Spezieria" (pharmacy): positions in which he was confirmed by Cosimo III in 1670, when he became grand duke. So Redi spent much of his life at the Medici's court and was, after Galileo, a unique example of scientist and courtier. He stressed the importance of medicine based on Hippocratic principles, and he emphasised the importance of prevention based on a balanced diet and the use of exclusively natural remedies. Most importantly, he helped invent the method of experimental biology and was involved in the greatest discovery of 17th century medicine: the origin of scabies from mites. His first publication, in 1664, was study of the toxicity, the origin, and the mode of injection of snake venom.
