The theme of this year’s edition of the annual Sigma Symposium is ‘Revolutionary Science’. It seemed very fitting for this lustrum-year, an exciting and wonderful year for Sigma to (among other things) celebrate her history, to look back at some of the grand scientific achievements from the past and their current influences. However, the subject was not limited to this; the organizing committee also took advantage of the opportunity to invite speakers on topics she believed would pave the way for new revolutions in the (bio)chemistry in the years to come.
The ‘Revolutionary Science’-symposium will offer a close look to a very broad array of subjects. The speakers will, by default, speak on subjects that are or will be very important for our lives and will range from the future of antibiotics to research on chiral molecules in interstellar space.
The symposium will take place in the first lustrum-week on April 12th 2017 in the Faculty of Science of the Radboud University Nijmegen. In between the diverse selection of lectures several breaks will be taken, accompanied with a lunch and coffee. The day closes with an informal drink to which all visitors and lecturers are invited.
Subscriptions are open now, so we hope to see you there!
