Dr Josif Pančić was born on the 17th of April in 1814 in Ugrina, the village on the slopes of Velebit, and died on the 25th of February in 1888 in Belgrade. He finished his studies at the Faculty of Medicine in Budapest in 1842 defending a doctoral thesis entitled "Taxilogia Botanica", which he dedicated to his uncle Grgur who provided him with financial support during his studies. He was promoted to a doctor of medicine at the same university on the 7th of September in 1843. As a physician, he worked in Kragujevac and Jagodina. He participated in the liberation wars that Serbia waged against Turkey and Bulgaria. He was awarded several peacetime and wartime medals. In 2014, UNESCO marked the 200th anniversary of the birth of dr Josif Pančić, which we join with this paper.
