*** According to Brüning, Sennert was the first to introduce chemistry as a separate subject in the medical curriculum. Daniel Sennert (1572-1637) from Breslau, professor in Wittenberg and elector's personal physician, advocated a balance between Paracelsian and Aristotelian-Galenic medicine. He was one of the pioneers in chemistry.
