In what way can we optimize our body? In what way can we avoid or improve functions and senses in the body?

Science Today takes the temperature of science in 2023 and invites you to an afterwork where, doctoral students and postdocs from Karolinska Institute (KI), KTH Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) and Stockholm University (SU) get the chance to present their research on stage.

After their talks, the conversation continues with a networking mingle in the bar with music that stimulates the brain! Science Today investigates the world of science and technology and creates an opportunity for PhD students, researchers and other enthusiasts with an interest in scientific research to meet and exchange ideas.

Previous nights have had topics such as The Complexity of the Brain and The Exploration of Space, Geneticsand Foodtech. Now it’s time to explore the human body. The use and access to technology to understand our body has increased significantly – how do we view body rhythm in relation to technology?

This evening’s conversation takes place in English and is led by the Nobel Prize Museum’s Olof Somell. Your ticket includes entrance to the museum exhibitions that are open before and after the event. Bistro Nobel will serve tasty dishes from our Friday menu as well as bubbly and refreshing drinks. The ticket price also includes entrance to the museum’s exhibitions, which are open until 21:00.

Science Today is a collaboration with Karolinska Institutet, the Royal Institute of Technology and Stockholm University
