In search of transcending the limitations of human biology

I am impatiently longing for a much better life of the human kind. Only by learning how life functions and why it ceases to function, by exploring the limits of life and death, can we break out of the slavery to our genes and
become something truly special in the living world. Emancipating cultural evolution from the slow, wasteful and cruel natural biological evolution - that is the research project that excites me now - after well over four decades of research on mechanisms of DNA repair and replication, mutation, genetic recombination, molecular evolution and cancer.

I am aware of the importance of the banality that, like everybody else,
I could not choose the egg and the sperm that made up my biology,
not could I choose my parents, and their cultural geography,
that have largely determined my personality. Hence, no guilt
and no merit for what I became! I just tried to do the best I
could within the limits of my biological and cultural
imprints from which I tried to emancipate as much
as I could, and wanted, as I grew older.

So, I happen to be born in a cellar in the bombarded
city of Split (Croatia) towards the end of Second World
War and to grow up happily on beautiful Adriatic islands
of Solta and Hvar. I was lucky to have had smart, strong and
loving parents with only six years of elementary school.
I love my talented and humorous family: my wife Danica
and my children Mikula, Ljuba and Maria, and enjoy the
friendship and generosity of many friends all over the world.
If interested, the reader can get to know me better
by reading

first chapter of my book "Beyond our biological limitations".
