This talk will look at the impact of the First World war on the lives and research careers of some members of the Lister Institute and the Pathological Society of Great Britain. It will reveal how careers and research trajectories were temporarily diverted by war, how some were changed forever, and how some if not all of the knowledge acquired as part of the war effort developed into outcomes with solid benefits for human health.
