VinFuture Foundation will hold its Online Science Dialogue series' second installment discussing "Renewable energy and new materials for the future" on November 12th, 2021. The Dialogue will see the attendance of world-class scientists, most notably Professor Konstantin (Kostya) Sergeevich Novoselov, a Nobel Prize laureate in Physics. The event is aimed at bringing science and technology closer to the general public with solutions that have high real-world applicability.
Denmark-based Lundbeck Foundation announced that a four-member team of scientists, namely Peter Goadsby, Lars Edvinsson, Jes Olesen, and Michael Moskowitz, had won the Brain prize amounting to approximately US$1.5 million.
The team set up conditions so that the only mutant genes to thrive are the ones encoding proteins capable of accomplishing the desired function within the cells including activating a particular receptor or switching on specific genes
