Science Meets Society Roundtable - Breaking Through: My Life in Science by Katalin Karikó

Leibniz-HKI Nucleus Cafe

We are happy to announce the next installment of Science Meets Society, a place to discuss topics of ethics, equity and inclusion in science, and the role that our work plays in society.

This time around, we will read the autobiography Breaking Through: My Life in Science by Katalin Karikó. Karikó is a Hungarian-American biochemist who was one of the winners of 2023 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine and whose research played a major role in the development of the Covid vaccine.

If you are member of the Microverse Cluster, JSMC or Leibniz-HKI, you may request a copy of the book by replying to this email. We have limited books so please only request if you intend to attend on February 8th.
