Roberto Eusebio Mancini

Roberto Eusebio Mancini Doria, Argentine morphologist (Buenos Aires 26 September 1914 – 03 February 1977)

Son of Italian immigrants

Internationally recognized as one of world’s foremost experts on histophysiology of human testis 

Performed studies about testes functions, connective tissue in human and animals and use of fluorescent substances 

Characterized cytological, embryological and histochemically the child human testis

Proposed the role of connective tissue as a transient depot for the extravascular pool of serum proteins 

With L. Lustig & B. Denduchis authored the first report on the chemical properties of the basement membrane of the seminiferous tubular wall (1975) and demonstrated a partial immunological identity among basement membranes of distinct species (1977)



With E. Sacerdote de Lustig introduced modifications to techniques for measuring the presence of glycogen in embryonary tissues  (1941-2)
