    Rudolf Virchow, Physician

    * October 13, 1821 in Schivelbein (Pomeranian)
    † September 5, 1902 in Berlin

    Rudolf Virchows study started in the Pépinière in Berlin in 1840. His most formative teacher was Johannes Müller, under whom he wrote his dissertation in 1843. In consequence of his participation in the riots in Berlin in March 1848 he lost all his positions and took the offer of a professorship at the Julius-Maximilians-Universität. In Würzburg he made the discovery that cells always emerge from other cells. In 1856 he returned to Berlin and engaged himself – also politically- for an improvement of the general hygiene and health care.

    His former residence is located in the Theaterstraße 1.
