Did you hear the recent announcement about the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 2014? It was awarded with one half to John O’Keefe and the other half jointly to May-Britt Moser and Edvard I. Moser “for their discoveries of cells that constitute a positioning system, an “inner GPS” in the brain”.
And you know what? Last year, Edvard Moser explained the biology behind his Nobel Prize as the keynote speaker at the Nov2k symposium at Karolinska Institutet!
What Nov2k is all about? Well, be part of it this year and experience it yourself!
‘Nov2k – Future of Science and Medicine’ is a multidisciplinary, interactive scientific symposium taking place at Novum, on Karolinska Institutet’s campus in Huddinge on the 20th-21st November this year. It’s wholly organized by graduate students.
This year, Nov2k celebrates its 15th anniversary, and with the theme “Science fiction” pays tribute to scientific innovations that may have previously been regarded as science fiction, but which today have a tremendous impact on society.
The engaging program includes a Poster Slam’ (where presenters give a pitch of their science and the audience votes for prizes), an exhibition about the future, an interdisciplinary workshop, and a panel discussion on the Future of Medicine.
