The birth of Team Vesalius
500 years ago, Andreas Vesalius changed the face of modern medicine. His ‘De humani corporis fabrica’ provided a scientific foundation and sparked a revolution that shook the industry to its core.
Today, his spirit lives in the minds of hundreds of Flemish scientists, scholars and entrepeneurs. These pioneers and visionaries form Team Vesalius, pushing the boundaries in Life Sciences and Health since 1514.
