ALL FORMATS 2016

FOR THE YOUNGEST
The wonders of the human body described playing. The splendour of the Anatomical Theatre, one of Bologna’s jewel, exclusively open for schools and families. A journey for young explorers of tomorrow’s knowledge.


THE STAGES OF LIFE
Diseases and medicine are analyzed through the body over time. A dynamic and historicized visit about pathological biology and anatomy. The awareness that the oganism identity can be measured on the different persons that we become throughout the multiple stages of our life.


THE GUEST COUNTRY
On the long journey of humanity, the cultural dimension projects itself on the evolution of species: to the same biology, different visions of the world and social developments correspond. This year, at Bologna Medicine, a new “guest country” has been selected: the millenary tradition of Chinese medicine is compared, positively, to our history and knowledge.


SPECIAL EVENTS
Music, art, cinema, shows. Medicine meets some of today and history’s protagonists, contaminating discourse genres, verifying translation itineraries, trying to let the richness of the philosophical-medical thought emerge from the comparison with other disciplines.


THE LESSON OF HISTORY
History is also the record of great medical achievements. It is difficult to imagine the recent social developments, with a life expectancy that in advanced countries aspires to one hundred years, without understanding the value of some fondumental pharmacological revolutions. Pandemic eradication, discovery of anti-inflammatories and antibiotics, the study of antiparasitics. At Bologna Medicine, 4 pharmaceuticals that have changed the history of humanity.


VISITS IN WARDS
Three beds, three patients, the same disease but different diagnosis and therapies in different historical periods. A mix between a conference and a theatrical event: the public follows the “primary doctor” – like in hospitals, in the morning “ward visits”– that examines the patients/students. Medicine’s progresses between old and new diseased people…but not only! Life in the family doctor’s studio: a simulation to understand the centrality of the patient.


FOCUS
Current day highlights: vaccines, personalized medicine, sleep disorders, doctor-patient relationship, cognitive exercise, ageing slow down, costs and benefits of research, new horizons in biotechnology, prevention, screening and transplants.


MEDICINE IN EVOLUTION
Medicine, like every science, is in continuous and positive evolution, yesterday’s discoveries represent the ground on which to build tomorrow’s knowledge. The conferences scheduled provide an overview of some recent developments of bio-medical research – but also of apparently distant disciplines, like information technology and telecommunication – tracing the horizon of medicine and of the doctor-patient future relationship.


AT THE TABLE!
Nutraceutics is one of the new and important dimensions of the relationship among health, disease, well-being and prevention. A conference programme to take the stock of what we know, what we are able to cure, what can be prevented, and what we should find in the dish, in all the stages of life!


EX CATHEDRA – NOBEL LECTURES
Magistral conferences, in the name of the great clinicians and scholars of the Alma Mater tradition of the first modern medicine school in the history of the University.


CURATED BY
A series of meetings organised and promoted by institutions, companies, bodies and sectoral organisations.
