We invite you to the pre-premiere screening of the film "Persian Eye" / "Perskie Oko" (dir. Renata Beck, 58 min.) and join a discussion about Lviv-based scientists, world science, and art.
The focus is on medical professionals – Doctor of Physiology, Adolf Beck, and an obstetrician-gynecologist, Henryk Beck. Their activities had an impact on the development of scientific reason.
Adolf Beck was a founder of the newly established Department of Physiology (1895) of the Medical Section of Lviv Research School of Physiologists. In 1912-1913 and 1914-1915, he was a rector of Jan Kazimierz University in Lviv. He was nominated for Nobel Physiology Prize three times (in 1905, 1908, 1911). The global academic community recognized him as a co-author of the electroencephalography method.
