Richard J. Bing (1909-2010) earned his medical degree at the University of Munich in 1934, he left Nazi Germany shortly after and continued his study at the University of Bern in Switzerland where he earned another medical degree in 1935. He took a fellowship in Copenhagen at the Carlsberg Biological Institute and was then invited to Rockefeller Institute in New York on the early development of machine perfusion. His work in the field of cardiology took him to institutions around the country, and eventually he joined the Huntington Medical Research Institutes in Pasadena, California as the Director of Experimental Cardiology and Scientific Development. He conducted pioneering cardiology research in cardiac metabolism, enabling the accurate measurements of the effect of drugs on the heart, studied the chemistry of heart attacks, and developed techniques for high-speed photography of the coronary vessels.
