A biography of Romanian physiologist Daniel Danielopolu is presented. He was born in Bucharest on April 12, 1884 and began to study both law and medicine in 1900. When he was awarded the Doctor of Medicine degree, he earned the Gold Medal of the Medical Faculty of the University of Bucharest for his thesis titled "Contributions to the Study of Raw Tuberculin." He died in 1955 for cholangiocarcinoma, where an institute he had worked for several years was renamed after him.
