Victor von Ebner

Anton Gilbert Victor von Ebner, Ritter von Rofenstein (February 4, 1842 - March 20, 1925) was an Austrian anatomist and histologist who was a native of Bregenz.

He was a student at the Universities of Göttingen, Vienna (under Ernst Wilhelm von Brücke), and Graz (under Alexander Rollett). In 1866 he earned his doctorate from Vienna, later becoming a professor of histology and developmental history at the University of Graz (1873), and a professor of histology at the University of Vienna (1888).

He was editor of Volume III of the sixth edition of Albert von Kölliker's Handbuch der Gewebelehre des Menschen (1899). In addition to his studies involving human anatomy and histology, he was also author of works with zoological and botanical themes.

He is remembered for providing descriptions of three eponymous anatomical structures:


  • Untersuchungen über den Bau der Samencanälchen und die Entwicklung der Spermatozoiden, (Leipzig 1871) – Studies on the construction of the seminal tubules, and the development of sperm.
