Marie Francois Xavier Bichat a French pathologist (1771-1802), is a world famous, known as the father of histology.

Just for the information:

Bichat performed over 600 autopsies, during which he examined how disease affected organs. These examinations led to his realization that pathology should be based on the study of the affected tissues of the organ rather than on the organ itself. While studying the macroscopic physical properties, he found that the texture was a tissue.  Although Bichat did not use the microscope, he distinguished 21 kinds of tissues that enter into different combinations in forming the organs of the body.
