ABSTRACT
Virchow, Rudolf (1821�1902), a German scientist and political leader. His chief distinction was in pathology, the science concerned with the cause and nature of disease and the bodily changes produced by disease. As the founder of cellular pathology, he established the fact that the cells of which all living things are composed are produced by other living cells, never spontaneously. Virchow showed that diseased cells are the offspring of other cells, and that the body may be cured by curing the diseased cells. Virchow also made contributions to ethnology, anthropology, archeology, and sanitation.
