Nobel laureate to address London students

Aiming for inspiration

Boost IT visibility and business value

Nobel prize-winning chemist Professor Aaron Ciechanover is set to give a talk about human disease and anticancer drug development to 120 scientists of the future.

The students, all studying for their A-levels or the equivalent, come from schools across London, and all say they want to go on to study chemistry at university.

The idea of the talk is to give students a flavour of what lies beyond university education. After his presentation, the students will have the opportunity to meet and speak with Professor Ciechanover abotu his research, and their own scientific ambitions.

The lecture is fully booked. "It's standing room only. We have been inundated with calls," a spokeswoman gushed.

Professor Ciechanover will be speaking at the Science Museum on Monday 10 October, ahead of giving the Ron Arad lecture to the medical community that evening.

In December 2004, he was awarded a Nobel Prize for his part in discoveries of ubiquitin-related protein degeneration - now known as the "Ubiquitin System". His work is already being used in new treatments for cancer, Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's. ®
