Marcello Malpighi (1628 – 1694)

Marcello Malpighi (1628 – 1694) was an Italian biologist and physician who in 1666 first named the liver lobules - "the livers of all vertebrates are conglomerate glands, being composed of lobules which in turn contain acini". He is also known for the spleen and renal structures that bear his name: Malpighian bodies of the spleen (white pulp); Malpighian corpuscle (renal corpuscle).
