Emile Kuss (1815-1871), French physician. Kuss studied and worked in Strasbourg. He carried out his studies at the University of Strasbourg, where he was head of anatomy from 1843, being appointed professor of physiology in 1846. Kuss and his colleague Sedillot pioneered the microscopic study of cancerous tissues. They published 'Recherches sur le cancer' (1846) and designed an instrument to perform the first biopsies a year later in 1847. Kuss was also active in politics. He was a republican, opposing imperial ambitions and supporting the 1848 June revolution. He became Mayor of Strasbourg in 1870 during the Franco-Prussian War, when the city surrendered following the Siege of Strasbourg.
