Vesalius discovered many new things about the body and even wrote a book (has a fancy latin name). He changed many of the mistakes that Galen had made - like that the septum has no holes in it and that the liver has not got 5 lobes. 

William Harvey also made loads of discoveries about circulation - such as the blood is not manufactured by the body but is constantly circulated around the body.
