Olof Rudbeck the Elder

Olof Rudbeck the Elder (1630–1702) was a multifaceted scientist, almost a universal genius, active at Uppsala University during the 17th century. As a young anatomy student, he discovered the lymphatic vessels and their significance. At that time, medical education was not yet established at the university. Olof Rudbeck, who was an enterprising person and a good representative of the ideas of the new age, contributed to the development of medical education and teaching at Uppsala University.

Olof Rudbeck was appointed Professor of Medicine with a teaching load in, among other things, anatomy. He built the Anatomical Theatre on the roof of the university (Gustavianum) to teach students and demonstrate human anatomy to the public.
