Data publikacji: 25 Lipca 2016

Napoleon Nikodem Cybulski (1854–1919), Professor and Head of Physiology Department of the Faculty of Medicine at the Jagiellonian University, was one of the most eminent Polish scientists of the turn of the 20th century. In textbooks on the history of medicine he is rightly credited as the originator of Polish physiology. The Physiology Department headed by Cybulski contributed a number of internationally pioneering discoveries in many areas of physiology. One of the most renowned scientific achievements of Professor Cybulski’s research team was the discovery, together with Szymonowicz, in 1894–1895, of a substance released from the adrenal cortex into the circulation.
