Come hear Nobel Laureate in Physiology/Medicine Edvard Moser discuss his groundbreaking discoveries about the human "GPS" system – "The brain’s positioning system: How do we know where we are?" – followed by presentations from this year's winners of the Science & SciLifePab Prize for Young Scientists.
The symposium is organized by Science and SciLifeLab with the kind support of Knut & Alice Wallenberg Foundation. The four winners will present their award-winning essays at the symposium in the following categories:
Cell and Molecular Biology: Includes cellular and molecular processes at levels ranging from single molecule to single cell to tissue and organ systems.
Genomics and Proteomics: Focuses on analyses of gene- and protein-related events, at the scale of gene or protein networks to the complete set of genes or proteins in an organism.
Ecology and Environment: Encompasses interactions between organisms and their environment, and how these processes are influenced by human activity.
Translational Medicine: Builds on in vitro or animal model studies of biological processes to develop potential therapies or medical procedures.
