Carlo Urbani
b. 10-19-1956; Castelplanio, Italy
d. 3-29-2003; Bangkok, Thailand (SARS)

Carlo Urbani was the infectious diseases physician who first identified SARS - severe acute respiratory syndrome - as a new and dangerous disease. Due to his early warning to the World Health Organization (WHO), a global response was mounted that probably saved millions of lives.

He became infected and succumbed to the disease, requesting that his tissue be saved for research.

Andreas Vesalius
b. 12-31-1514; Brussels, Belgium
d. 10-15-1564; Island of Zakynthos- on a pilgrimage to the Holy Lands

Andreas Vesalius was an innovative Early Renaissance anatomist and teacher who carried out dissection himself with students present, and kept meticulous drawings, rather than relying on the work of Galen.

Vesalius quote ~
• “Adam sons do not lack a rib, therefore Eva must have originated from somewhere else.”

Rudolf Virchow
b. 10-13-1821; Pomerania
d. 12-5-1902; Berlin

Doctor Rudolf Virchow is especially known for his advancements in public health and is called the “father of modern pathology” with his understanding that disease arised in the individual cells of a tissue, though his refusal to accept that bacteria caused disease delayed the use of antiseptics that were advocated by Ignaz Semmelweis.

Virchow with Matthias Jakob Schleiden and Theodor Schwann were cofounders of the cell theory.

Virchow was also influential in the field of anthropology, founding Gesellschaft fur Antropologie, Ethnologie und Urgeschichte in 1869; one of his students was Franz Boas.

Rudolf Virchow quotes ~
• “If popular medicine gave the people wisdom as well as knowledge, it would be the best protection for scientific and well-trained physicians.”
• “The task of science is to stake out the limits of the knowable, and to center consciousness within them.”
• “Medicine is a social science, and politics is nothing else but medicine on a large scale. Medicine, as a social science, as the science of human beings, has the obligation to point out problems and to attempt their theoretical solution: the politician, the practical anthropologist, must find the means for their actual solution.”
