Who is known as the father of endocrinology?

Answer: Charles Edward Brown-Sequard

In 1856, Charles Edward Brown-Sequard, a physician, made his first significant contribution to the field of endocrinology. He said that ‘removal of both adrenal glands from animals was fatal’ in a study to the Academy of Sciences in Paris.

  • However, believe that Thomas Addison deserves the credit of this.
  • Until 1921, endocrinology was regarded as quackery rather than serious medicine. The field of endocrinology did not become prominent until 1921, when insulin was discovered.
