Selye, Hans (1907-1982), was an Austrian-born Canadian medical researcher and endocrinologist (scientist who studies the body's endocrine glands). He became known for his concept of strains on the body known as stress. His study of endocrine glands helped him develop new understandings of the nature and effects of disease and the body's reactions to problems or events in a person's life. His medical research showed what can be done to adjust the body to many types of unpleasant situations.
