YEREVAN (Mediamax) — For the first time, Armenia will host five Nobel Prize laureates, who will give open lectures on Biochemistry, Physics and Medicine this April in Yerevan.
The “Nobel Days in Yerevan” event, unprecedented in Southern Caucasus, will be held on April 11-16 at Yerevan State Medical University.
“Be inspired and create” slogan will unite beneath the same roof those who want to get inspiration from world-renowned scientists and work to obtain scientific achievements, thus, returning Armenia into the international club of advanced countries.
The idea to invite Nobel Prize winners in Medicine, Biology and Physics belongs to Professor Konstantin Yenkoyan, Vice-Rector for Science and Research at Mkhitar Heratsi Yerevan State Medical University (YSMU).
He worked with Israeli biologist, 2004 Nobel laureate in chemistry Aaron Ciechanover in 2004-2005. Their close cooperation resulted in Israeli scientist’s visit to Armenia, where he delivered lectures at the invitation of YSMU in 2010. Ciechanover is one of the scientists visiting Armenia this April.
