01 June 2022The latest award of Professor András Varró has been the "Miklós Jancsó Memorial Medal", perhaps the most prestigious award in Medical Biology at the University of Szeged (SZTE). We talked to the former head of the Department of Pharmacology and Pharmacotherapy at the Albert Szent-Györgyi Medical School, University of Szeged, and Head of the Cardiovascular Pharmacology Research Group at Eötvös Loránd Research Network at SZTE about his previous awards. We recalled generations of doctors, Nobel Prize-worthy research, the history of the university, as well as Professor Varró's heartfelt interests - in the centenary academic year of the University of Szeged.
He has been fighting pseudoscience for many years, often engaging in a debate with people who would certainly be ignored by other scientists on the grounds that they cannot be convinced of anything. ’What motivates you and how did you start your career in biology?’ We spoke to Zsolt Boldogkői, Professor at the Department of Medical Biology, University of Szeged.
