    Francis Glisson - seventeenth century physician, anatomist and student at Caius College. His head looks down from the modern day Gonville and Caius College on Trinity Street. According to Wikipedia he helped debunk the balloonist theory of muscle contraction, which sounds a rather good thing to do.
