Biologist To Speak

Dr. Arnold E. Gussin, Professor of Biology at Touro College, will be the guest speaker when Rockaway Park Hadassah meets on March 11 at the Beach Club at 1 p.m.

Dr. Gussin will talk about how genetic diseases are passed on from parents to children. He will concentrate on those diseases especially prevalent in the Ashkenasi Jewish Community. The procedures that may lead to cures for these diseases will be discussed.

There will be a special focus on explaining the important work of gene therapy, which is supported by Hadassah.

This topic is considered to be most timely and fascinating given that this is the fiftieth anniversary of the discovery of DNA.
