Day four of #LINO23 began with a partner event on “CRISPR-Cas9: From Lab to Therapeutic Tool.” Afterwards, Young Scientists had ample opportunity to present their research in our Next Gen Science sessions. The Nobel Laureates continued with their Agora Talks and then headed off to the Laureate Lunches with Young Scientists. The afternoon consisted of two more Next Gen Science sessions and interesting Open Exchanges with Laureates. In the evening, the Heidelberg Lecture by Shwetak N. Patel, recipient of the 2018 ACM Prize in Computing, concluded the scientific programme. Last but not least, Young Scientists can finish off their day with a dinner while enjoying the Lindau sunset.

Quote of the Day

“The average consumer looks at their phone three hours a day. That’s three hours of data that can have a health impact.”
