“Evenings at the Moise”: Lecture by Dr. Juraj Sepčić

Dr. Juraj Sepčić has designed a series of lectures entitled “Flipping through a Catalogue of Human Pathology”, divided by topics into several “chapters” that will be presented to the public in the coming months. The first lecture entitled “Congenital and hereditary diseases,” held on October 29th, 2020, at the Moise palace.

The audience had the opportunity to hear an explanation of the concept and functioning of genes and genetic inheritance, but also how people in the past, based on experience, sought to curb the transmission of hereditary diseases. Among other things, Dr. Sepčić looked at the current pandemic from a genetic point of view, explaining how and why individuals will develop different disease forms. We also learned how modern medicine allows the treatment and cure of hereditary diseases that were considered incurable until recently.
