Edouard Gerard Balbiani

Édouard-Gérard Balbiani (1823 – 1899) was a French embryologist born in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Balbiani in his youth went to Frankfurt am Main, and then to Paris to complete his studies. Balbiani first became a medical doctor in 1854, though his career was entirely with microscopic studies. He became Professor of Embryogeny at the College de France in 1874, a position he held his entire life.


Balbini Body History  
Prof. Édouard-Gérard Balbiani (1823–1899)
  • 1864 - Balbiani first described this structure in oocytes of spiders and myriapods.
  • 1887 - Henneguy (Balbiani‘s student) first named the structure “Balbiani’s vesicle”.
  • 1893 - Balbiani summarized his earlier observations. Henneguy now names this structure the “yolk body of Balbiani”.
  • 1923 - Van der Stricht identified this "central vitelline" or "Balbiani body" separately from the surrounding. vitellogenic or mitochondrial bed.

For more information see Hertig's 1968 presentation.[1]
