A Candidate Doctor of the Department of Biochemistry and Biotechnology of the University of Thessaly in an Ancient Ride with 43 Nobel Prize-winners

This year the world-renowned science forum, held annually in Lindau, Germany, will take place from 24 to 29 June 2018. The Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings (http://www.lindau-nobel.org), as they are known, are a world-renowned forum, during which prominent and promising young scientists meet to exchange knowledge and insights through seminars, discussions and social events organized specifically for the occasion. Within the week, the new generation of scientists is inspired, trained and networked by this unique opportunity to reach out to the most important representatives of science.

The 2018 Forum is dedicated to Medicine / Physiology and 43 Nobel Prize-winners along with 600 young scientists (up to 35 years old) from around the world will participate. These young people were selected after a thorough assessment with strict criteria of their scientific training, their interest in research, their momentum for development, and above all, whether they belong worldwide to the top 10% of young scientists in their industry today. The process of evaluation and selection of young scientists has just been completed and among them is the Ph.D. candidate of the Department of Biochemistry and Biotechnology of the University of Thessaly, Mr. Efthimis Kyriakis, who is preparing his doctoral thesis, with a scholarship from IKY, inthe Laboratory of Structural and Functional Biochemistry of the Department under the supervision of Prof. Dim. Leonidas in the field of drug-directed drug design. It is the first time that a student of the Department of Biochemistry and Biotechnology is selected. This success, in addition to the scientific excellence of Mr. Kyriadis, also highlights the high level of scientific research and education in the Department of Biochemistry and Biotechnology.
