Symposium in Washington with world-leading scientists
Date:9/24/2010

The Nobel Prize, the correlation between genes and lifestyle, and the ability of the brain to repair itself are three of the topics that will be discussed at an international symposium today at the Swedish embassy, the House of Sweden, in Washington DC. The symposium has been arranged by Karolinska Institutet in collaboration with the Fogarty International Center at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and the Swedish embassy in Washington.

And Karolinska Institutet has also made significant and valuable contributions", says Professor Harriet Wallberg-Henriksson, President of Karolinska Institutet in her opening speech.

The theme of the symposium is "Medical Research and Public Health". Nobel Prize laureate Professor Jack Szostak is keynote speaker, with a presentation entitled "The Origin of Life".

Another speaker during the symposium is Professor Hans Jrnvall, who will describe the work of selecting the Nobel Prize-winners in physiology or medicine. Professor Hans Jrnvall was previously secretary of the Nobel Committee, which investigates proposed Nobel laureates, and the Nobel Assembly, which selects the winning candidate and consists of 50 professors from Karolinska Institutet.

Professor Nancy Pedersen will describe the unique Swedish Twin Registry, which allows scientists to investigate how heredity and environment influence diseases. Scientists have used the Swedish Twin Registry, for example, to show that environment and lifestyle play greater roles in the development of cancer than heredity plays.

Epidemiology research in Sweden also enjoys unique advantages. Professor Henrik Grnberg will talk about the Swedish system of population registration and how careful use of personal registration and sick
