FLORES, Jose, Mexican physician, born in Chiapas, Mexico, about 1730 ; died in Guatemala about 1795. He studied medicine in his native City, was called to a professorship at the University of San Carlos de Guatemala in 1775, and appointed president of the board of medicine of Central America. He made many journeys through that country, studying botany, formed a rich herbarium for the University, and gave impulse to the teaching of anatomy by constructing with his own hands three models for his classes. Flores wrote many scientitle works, which are preserved in manuscript at the library of San Carlos. The only one published is "Especifico Nuevamente Descubierto en el Reino de Guatemala para ia curacidn radical del horrible real del Cancro" (Mexico, 1782; reprinted in 1802). The work asserts that cancer can be radically cured by eating a kind of lizard found near San Cristo bal Amatitlan in Guatemala.
