Famous Alumnus close-up

Henricus Josephus Rega

Henricus Rega was born in 1690 in Leuven and was a pioneer in medicine for the university. He studied medicine in Leuven and Paris and became professor in medicine in Leuven. Because of him, the university built the anatomical theater, a hexagon building on the corner of the Capucijnevoer and Minderbroederstraat. He was also responsible for the "Kruidtuin" and a medicine library. To honor his legacy, the new Insitute established in 1954 carries his name.
