The course of history has been affected by epidemics on numerous occasions. Various diseases have transformed individual destinies, becoming the common experience of generations. In recent times, societies worldwide have struggled with the same virus that threatens human health and life. Yet there has never been a time when hard-working and ingenious people have not gone to great lengths to cure their fellow human beings.
In addition to curing, prevention has come to the fore over the centuries as anatomical knowledge and diagnostics have improved. With the growth of empirical knowledge, surgical interventions appeared and, over time, medicine came to be associated with technological advances.
In the laboratory of the Medicine hub, we enter a world of great, dedicated doctors, life-saving inventions, medicine boxes, and outstanding advances in medical technology. We can peer into the centuries of Hungarian doctors and the sensational solutions of modern medicine.
