Johann Anton Merck (1756-1805) was the fifth generation to run the Merck pharmacy. He combined hands-on work in the dispensary with scientific research, published in respected journals and demonstrated a curious mind, a passion for innovative concepts and an interest in establishing international networks. It was in this prolific atmosphere that his son, Emanuel Merck (1794-1855), grew up and successfully turned the family's pharmacy into a science-based industrial company.
