4,000 Years of Clinical Trials: Hippocrates, a Shipwreck and the Revival of Medical Traditions The name of Hippocrates is synonymous with medicine. But does the historical man deserve the title “Father of Medicine?” Or does the appellation actually limit our understanding of ancient Greek medicine and its importance through history? Join Smithsonian scholars Alain Touwaide, PhD and Emanuela Appetiti to explore this topic through extensive study of the history of Greek medicine from its most ancient written trace to present-day heirs of this long tradition. From case stories and documents generated by the Hippocratics to the DNA sequencing of the plant medicines recovered from a 2nd century BCE shipwreck, Touwaide and Appetiti explore how research and modern technologies bring ancient Greek medicine alive in our time. The emergent is not only more real and lively, but also much richer, made of empirical discoveries by trial and error during centuries, carefully repeated and refined generation after generation, and constantly transmitted with great care. Hippocrates and Greek medicine appear in a very new light: not so much the hieratic “Father of Medicine” and a canonical corpus, but the conclusion of a long journey of humankind – and the starting point of the next adventure of the human spirit. Early registration (by Oct. 6): $18 for Part 1, or $45 for Parts 1 and 2 (includes catered dinner and 2 hours of CE on Friday evening.) Part 1 is free to NCNM students.
