Manuel Joaquim Henrique de Paiva (1752-1829) is a Lusitano-Brazilian doctor and apothecary. He has an atypical career between Portugal and Brazil. His family was driven out of Portugal by the Inquisition and he grew up in Brazil and graduated as an apothecary. He returned to Portugal later to become a doctor and to teach in Lisbon and Coimbra. He will also work in France with Gay-Lussac. Once again driven out of Portugal for his Napoleonic affinities, he ended his life in Brazil.
