Giulio Bizzozero (1846-1901) was an Italian doctor and medical researcher. He is known as the original discoverer of Helicobacter pylori, the bacteria which is responsible for peptic ulcer disease (although this fact was not generally accepted until the 1990s). He was one of the early pioneers of histography, and, more generally, the use of the microscope in medical research. He is also credited with the discovery of the function of platelets in the coagulation of blood.
