Plants have been used for 1000s of years in the treatment of human diseases, though this historical knowledge is often lost. Our interdisciplinary research group uses Nordic historic texts and archaeological remains as inspiration to ‘rediscover’ what plants have historically been used to treat disease.

Tid og stad: 18. feb. 2021 16:0017:00, Digital event

This event includes popular science talks by the research fellows of the ABINO project with expertise in biology, musicology, and physics. A musical interlude will explore the use of rhythms based on physiology. The event will end with a panel discussion among the ABINO senior scientists reflecting on the possibilities and challenges of working in such a radically interdisciplinary constellation. The event will be streamed live and filmed.

During the panel discussion it will be possible to interact with the ABINO senior scientists via the chat function on the live stream.

The ultimate boundaries of human reproduction lie at the limited availability of egg and sperm.  The ability to create sperm and eggs in the laboratory opens up a new world of reproductive possibilities. Imagine a world in which same sex couples can have babies genetically related to both partners. Where the menopause no longer spells the end of a woman’s fertility. Where any individual, of any age, can produce both sperm and eggs. 

Join us in this webinar to explore these questions from the perspectives of philosophy, anthropology, medicine, and molecular biology. Our two hour webinar will feature experts in each of these fields, who will discuss the prospect of artificial gametes and answer your questions about what the future holds for human reproduction.

The webinar is free to attend. We warmly welcome all participants.

Mental disorders are recognized as leading causes of disability and morbidity globally, and are among the costliest disorders to affect humans. The causal underpinnings of these disorders is a complex web of genetic, biological and psychosocial mechanisms. Recent advances in technology and computational techniques can help disentangle this complexity, leading to a further understanding of the conditions and subsequently better strategies for treatment and prevention.

In the last decade, artificial intelligence has surpassed humans in among others the games of Go and Starcraft. Many researchers believe it's only a matter of time before we make an artificial intelligence that is smarter than humans in all areas. Most famous of these is Ray Kurzweil who predicts this will happen before the year 2050. But will this intelligence be conscious? What are the implications if it is or not? We invite to a panel discussion where these and other questions will be discussed.
