How is energy produced in our bodies, and how do the nuclear reactors of the future function?

Welcome to Science Today – an evening that will kickstart your brain and the weekend with today’s most exciting research and some of Stockholm’s best DJs. Learn more about science, mingle and enjoy a specially curated Friday menu.

Science Today invites PhD students and postdocs from the Karolinska Institute (KI), Chalmers University of Technology, the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Stockholm University (SU) and special guest Chalmers Institute of Technology to present their research on stage. The focus will be on power and energy – from nuclear power to the cell’s ability to generate energy.

What do we know about the next generation of nuclear reactors? Are they efficient and safe enough in the event of an accident? Is there any way to prevent the body cells decline in generating energy, as we age? Learn more about this and much more at the seventh edition of Science Today, where we delve into alternatives for energy efficiency and ways to improve our health.
