Gerard Leendertsz Blasius or Gerrit (Amsterdam, 1627 - Amsterdam, 1682 [2][3]) was a Dutch physician and anatomist. He was the eldest son of Leonard Blasius (-1644), who had worked as an architect in Copenhagen. Gerard started his studies there, but the family moved to Leiden, after his father died. Around 1655 he became a physician in Amsterdam. In October 1659 Blasius was appointed at the Athenaeum Illustre but without being paid. In the next year he became the first Amsterdam professor in medicine. At his home or in the hospital corpses were dissected. In 1661 he claimed the discovery of Stensen's duct by his pupil Nicolas Stensen.
