Chemistry Nobel laureates to give talks at UM

Prof Ada Yonath and Prof Aaron Ciechanover, both Nobel laureates in chemistry, will give talks at the University of Macau (UM) on 10 July and 11 July respectively. During their stay at UM, the two scientists will also participate in the Second Macau Symposium on Biomedical Sciences. Both scientists have made significant breakthroughs in the field of biology and pathology. Prof Aaron Ciechanover received a Nobel Prize in chemistry in 2004 for characterising the method that cells use to degrade and recycle proteins using ubiquitin. Prof Ada Yonath received a Nobel Prize in chemistry together with two other scientists in 2009 for their research in ribosome. Prof Ciechanover will give a talk titled ‘The Personalized Medicine Revolution: Are We Going to Cure All Diseases and at What Price?’. The other speaker, Prof Ada Yonath, will give a talk titled ‘Resistance to Antibiotics and Preserving the Microbiome’. She will explain the relationship between genetic code, ribosome, and antibiotics. In addition to the Nobel Laureate lectures, the two scientists will participate in the Second Macau Symposium on Biomedical Sciences. Organised by UM’s Faculty of Health Sciences, the event aims to provide a platform for scholars and researchers from around the world to discuss the latest developments in biomedical sciences and to explore opportunities for future collaboration.
