2019 THEME - THE INTELLIGENCE OF HEALTH

“Health depends on intelligence and intelligence on health. Studies from the developing field of cognitive epidemiology show that a high level of intelligence at the age of 11 reduces the risk of vascular illness, obesity, various chronic illnesses and certain forms of mental illness”

AN EVENT PACKED PROGRAMME

There are many appointments on the programme for the fifth edition which will be especially packed with meetings, contents, new features and eminent speakers. The Medical Science Festival is an important and eagerly awaited occasion to learn more about and popularise science with nationally and internationally famous guests.

A GROWING SUCCESS

The fourth edition in 2018 was a great public success with 55,000 people attending, 10% up on the previous year, at the festival’s over 70 events with more than 100 speakers taking part. Its 18 halls were packed with people, including the majestic Salone del Podestà at Palazzo Re Enzo.

NOBEL PRIZE WINNERS

The fifth edition of the Medical Science Festival will host John Gurdon, 2012 Nobel Prize winner for Medicine for his work on pluripotent stem cells, and Aaron Ciechanover, Nobel Prize winner for Chemistry in 2004 for his ubiquitin-dependent protein degradation discoveries.

2018 Edition

Great success for the fourth edition of the Festival, dedicated to the "Time of care": many citizens, even very young, doctors, and experts who ask for answers and reliable information. Against fake news it is increasingly important that science comes out of the labs to become alive, pulsating, engaging, a benefit of the whole community.
