We will honour a contemporary chemistry Nobel Prize women, Ada Yonath (2009 Chemistry Nobel, Weizmann institute, Israel) on a special conference the 21st of may, in Paris.
She will discuss on the ribosome, with 2 researchers, Puri Lopez Garcia, a specialist of the origins of life scenarios, and Thierry Naas, a specialist of new mecanisms involved in antibiotics resistance.
This will show how a chemistry research, by its technology and its way of thinking, has enlightened biology perspectives and medical applications in a transdisciplinary way.
