>"Evolution has made the brain slower as it has grown. This knowledge can be used, for example, to help researchers who work with artificial intelligence, and for continued research in autism, schizophrenia and dyslexia."

Ernest Arenas, professor in stem cell neurobiology, will present his findings at the seminar "Cells, tissues, organs, and organisms: evolution of repairative processes in complex biological structures". Professor Ernest Arena's presentation is entitled "Generation and regeneration of dopamine neurons: Therapeutic approaches to Parkinsons disease".

"If we can understand how dopamine-produced nerve cells are formed in the body, we may be able to cultivate these nerve cells," says Professor Ernest Arenas. "In the future, we hope to be able to help Parkinson's patients by transplanting and replacing the cells that have died. Our research can also contribute to drug development for Parkinson's disease."

The workshop "Redefining the research university collaborating over and beyond the walls of tradition" has been organised on the initiative of Karolinska Institutet's Development Council and President as part of the university's bicentennial celebration. Johanna Diehl is on the organising committee:

"The participants will have the opportunity to discuss the challenges facing the students, teachers, researchers and administrators of tomorrow. The aim is to come up with concrete ideas for change."
