Wahlenberg succeeded Carl Peter Thunberg as chair of Medicine and Botany, the same chair held in the previous century by Carl Linnaeus. Professor of Medicine and Botany at Uppsala University, he studied homeopathy and becoming convinced of its truth, became the first person to introduce homeopathy into Sweden.
