Andreas Vesalius (1514-1564). Caricature of the Belgian anatomist Andreas Vesalius holding the arm of a cadaver that has had the skin removed to show the musculature and from which the nerves have been dissected. Vesalius was made professor of anatomy and surgery at Padua University, Italy, in 1537. In 1543, Vesalius published his lectures in 'De Corporis Humani Fabrica' (On the Structure of the Human Body), which set a completely new level of accuracy in anatomy.
