Today marks the 136th anniversary of the birth of the famous Greek physician and professor of anatomy Georgios Papanikolaou. The Google Doodle team decided to publish a new drawing in honor of this event.

On it the professor is depicted at work near a microscope. A separate enlarged fragment of us shows the cells under the laboratory glass, which he studied. Behind him hangs a picture of the female body. Also on the table in front of him are two large notebooks for notes or books.

All this should suggest the direction of work of Georgios Papanikolaou. His research has affected cytological changes in cervical cancer. He published his conclusions in 1943 under the title Diagnosis of Uterine Cancer with Smears. And therefore, as a result of his research, he became the founder of a new scientific branch of cytology.
