Today was the last day of #LINO23 in the meeting venue Inselhalle, as we will head off to Mainau Island tomorrow, where we celebrate the final day of this eventful week. After two intriguing Agora Talks, the fifth day continued with four lectures of the Laureates. Subsequently, some of the Young Scientists went to Laureate Lunches, followed by more opportunities for personal encounters in the Open Exchange sessions and Science Walks. In the afternoon, we had three workshops – two on the Lindau Guidelines and the other one on the topic of Climate Change. The social programme for the night is the Bavarian Evening. We are looking forward to seeing many participants in their traditional attires.

Quote of the Day

“I published this as an abstract as soon as possible because we were afraid that someone would get this patented. We didn’t want this patented! We wanted it in the public domain.”

Sir Martin J. Evans, Nobel Laureate in Physiology/Medicine 2007, on his groundbreaking work on embryonic stem cells.
