During the transition of the Department of Biochemistry to the Medical College of Wisconsin, he served the Medical College of Wisconsin as a Research Professor.
Dr. Quick, a native of Theresa, Wisconsin, was a prolific scientist, researcher and physician who made monumental contributions to modern medicine and is best known for his work on blood coagulation and his studies of detoxification. During his career, he wrote more than 300 articles and 8 books. In 1932, he developed the one stage prothrombin time test, a blood clotting test that measures the activity of fibrinogen, prothrombin, factor V, factor VII, and factor X. Also known as the Quick Test, it is still used today.
