Biography of Georg Ludwig Kobelt
Georg Ludwig Kobelt attended the University of Heidelberg, where he first studied law, but changed to medicine as a pupil of Friedrich Tiedemann (1781-1861). He obtained his medical doctorate in 1833, was habilitated as Privatdocent, and in 1835 became prosector under his teacher. In 1837 he made a scientific journey to Holland, Great Britain, and France. In 1841 he moved to the position as Prosector at the University of Freiburg, where he was appointed professor of anatomy in 1847. He died in 1857 after seven years of ailing health.
As an anatomist he made exquisite preparations, comparable to those of Frederik Ruysch (1638-1738) and Joseph Hyrtl (1810-1894).
