Nikolay Sklifosovsky

Nikolai Vasilyevich Sklifosovsky (Russian: Николáй Васильевич Склифосóвский; 6 April [O.S. 25 March] 1836 — 13 December [O.S. 30 November] 1904) was a Russian surgeon and physiologist of Greek origin (his grandfather's surname was Sclifos). He was born near the town of Dubasari, which is now in Transnistria. Sklifosovsky was a professor of medicine in Saint Petersburg and Kiev. The Moscow Institute of Emergency First Aid, often abbreviated as Sklif, bears his name since 1923.

In 2001, the Central Bank of Transnistria minted a silver coin honoring this native of today's Transnistria, as part of a series of memorable coins called The Outstanding People of Pridnestrovie.
