Giulio Cesare Casseri, (c.1552-1616), surgeon and anatomist, was especially known during his lifetime for his research into the anatomy of the speech and auditory organs.Casseri’s father died when he was young leaving his family poor, so when he attended medical school at the University of Padua he did so as the servant of another student.

Later he was a servant to the noted Fabricius ab Aquapendente (c. 1533-1619), whose chair in surgery and anatomy Casseri later filled. In about 1600, Casseri began work on an anatomical atlas covering the entire human body, which he still had not completed at the time of his death in 1616. It has been conjectured that Fabricius stopped its publication in 1616 because of a rivalry between the two.
