Leopoldina: Webinar on New Findings in the Life Sciences

Hall. Leopoldina. How do cells recognize a lack of oxygen, how do crops become more robust against climate change and what role does nitrogen or iron play in human health? Sir Peter J. Ratcliffe, Nobel Prize in Medicine 2019, and other members of the Academy on these topics at a Class II webinar – Life Sciences of the National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina.

Second Class Online Seminar – Life Sciences
1. Life Sciences Symposium 2021
Thursday 27 May 2021
From 9 AM to 5 PM

The National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina class seminars themselves are forums for scholarly exchange and provide insights into the diverse research topics of the Academy members. On Thursday, May 27, 2021, Category 2 members will talk about the results of their current research in the life sciences.

The three rounds deal with cellular energy metabolism (Prof. Dr. Johannes Hermann, University of Kaiserslautern, Prof. Dr. Sir Peter J. Ratcliffe, University of Oxford / UK), production of new bacterial agents (Prof. Dr. Jörn Piel, ETH Zurich / Switzerland) and the development of climate-resistant crops. (Prof. Dr. Uwe Sonnewald, Friedrich-Alexander University, Erlangen-Nuremberg). In addition, Prof. Paola Piccotti (ETH Zurich / Switzerland) developed a method for representing all proteins in an organism, the protein, in three dimensions. Prof. Ursula Jacob (University of Michigan / USA), Professor Dr. Andreas Baumler (University of California / USA) and Prof. Dr. Martina Macenthaler (Heidelberg University Hospital) explains in her lectures how oxygen, nitrogen and iron affect the development of diseases.
