Philipp Friedrich Theodor MeckelPhilipp Friedrich Theodor Meckel (30 April 1755, Berlin – 17 March 1803, Halle an der Saale) was a German anatomist, surgeon and obstetrician.
He was the son of Johann Friedrich Meckel, a professor of anatomy in Berlin. Two of Philipp's sons also became anatomists, Johann Friedrich (1781–1833), a professor at the University of Halle, and August Albrecht (1790-1829), a professor in Bern.
He studied medicine at the universities of Göttingen and Strasbourg, receiving his doctorate in 1777 with a dissertation on the labyrinth of the inner ear. Following graduation he took an extended study trip to Paris, London and Edinburgh. From 1779 he served as a professor of anatomy and surgery at the University of Halle, and in 1788 took on additional duties as head of the surgical unit at the hospital in Glaucha. On two separate occasions (1795, 1797) he was summoned as an obstetrician to St. Petersburg by the Russian royal family.
At Halle, he maintained and expanded upon an anatomical collection ("''Meckelsche Sammlungen''") that was initiated by his father. Provided by Wikipedia
