ROOM 1: THE BRAIN: INTERDISCIPLINARY APPROACHES

Interdisciplinary approaches to diseases affecting our brains and neurological systems. One works at the intersection of neuroscience and brain cancer biology, the other focuses on decoding host-microbiome interactions and their effects on health and disease.

ROOM 2: NEW TECHNOLOGIES FOR BETTER HUMAN AND NATURAL HEALTH

Holger Puchta uses CRISPR/Cas technology towards a more sustainable agriculture, Giovanni Traverso has developed a transformative technology to improve drug delivery and nutrient absorption.

ROOM 3: TACKLING NEURODEGENERATIVE DISEASE

Different approaches to tackle neurodegenerative disease: Xian-Dong Fu has developed a new strategy to convert astrocytes into functional neurons, and thereby rebuild lost neural circuits. Sergiu Pasca’s team grows human brain organoids and assembloids from stem cells to learn about development and disease mechanisms.

ROOM 4: COMBATING COVID-19

Methods to combat COVID-19: One generates natural human antibodies that completely block COVID-19, the other has worked to combine structure-assisted drug design and virtual drug screening to help identify new drugs to combat COVID-19.

ROOM 5: NEXT GENERATION MEDICINES

Two top-class scientists working to ensure safer, more efficient and sustainable ways of treating diseases.
