Mutual Inspirations Festival 2017 - Gregor Mendel


Celebrating Gregor Mendel

May 03, 2017, 3:42 PM

For the year and in the fall of 2017, the Mutual Inspirations Festival honors Gregor Johann Mendel, the father of modern-day genetics.

Although his revolutionary deductions were not recognized in his lifetime, Mendel died convinced that his conclusions would one day be accepted for their contribution to "the developmental history of organic forms." Today, the brilliant Augustinian scientist, hailing from what is now the Czech Republic, is posthumously recognized worldwide for his years of tedious experimentation, utter detail and, of course, pioneering principles of inheritance,  the foundation of genetics. His work has inspired every continent, even Antarctica is home to the Mendel Polar Station, the Czech Republic’s research base.

The Mutual Inspirations Festival hopes to inspire all this fall.
