Quinnipiac's School of Medicine is named for Dr. Frank H. Netter, the noted surgeon and world's most prolific medical illustrator. Beginning in the late 1930s, Dr. Netter began illustrating the entire anatomic and pathologic character of the human body, system by system.

"As a medical illustrator, Dr. Netter provided generations of students with scientific and medical information that was simply not available before his works were widely published," said Dr. Bruce Koeppen, founding dean. A major gift from Barbara and the late Edward Netter made possible this tribute to Edward's first cousin. "Frank was known as 'Medicine's Michelangelo,' creating atlases of the human anatomy that are to this day at the center of medical education throughout the world," said Barbara Netter.
