The 2014 Nature Videos 


At the 64th Lindau Meeting, Nature Video produced four films, discussing some big questions in biomedical science. Nobel Laureates and young scientists talk about implications of an ageing population, drugs without side effects, scientific achievements of 40 years of cancer research, and most recent developments in the battle against HIV.

Nature Outlook Video


The annual Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings feature many opportunities for young scientists to learn from some of the most successful scientists around today. Yet there are fewer chances for the laureates to find out about the challenges that young scientists face today, and what they feel is important. Nature Outlook organised a special event, called Turning the Tables, to redress this balance and this film presents you with the highlights. Supported in part by The Joachim-Herz Foundation.


Filmed at the 2010 Lindau Meeting, Nobel Laureates question a panel of young scientists about the challenges they face today and what they think about the future.
