Dubai – MENA Herald: Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Foundation (MBRF), Foundation – a member of the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives – organised a workshop on the topic ‘Nobel Prizes: the life and the dance of large molecules’, as part of the Nobel Museum Exhibition 2016, hosted by MBRF in Dubai.
The workshop, which is the second in a series, discussed the role of the molecules in the development of human life, and the scientific research and discoveries carried out in this area. It also highlighted the winners of Nobel Prize in the areas related to DNA as well as chromosomes and proteins, and explained the importance of the different types of molecules and their role in the structure of the human body.
The workshop led by Dr. Erling Norrby, former permanent secretary of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, was attended by His Excellency Jamal bin Huwaireb, Managing Director of MBRF, and a large number of academics and students of medical specialties from various universities from UAE.
Dr. Norrby explained the importance of the study of molecules in the field of knowledge and research, and said the discovery of DNA marked a major leap in human sciences. It unravelled vital information before scientists, and the controversies surrounding the subject led to further studies and in-depth research in the study of molecules, he said.
Dr. Norrby said the most important discovery in the field of molecules was made by Frederick Banting, who was one of the youngest winners of the Nobel Prize, and was honoured for his work on human insulin production. Dr. Norrby also highlighted the role of Vobyose Levine This Name couldn’t be Verified there no such name, please check!, who made several discoveries that revealed the role of molecules in the development of human life.
Dr. Norrby also brought to light discoveries by Peter and Linus Pauling, who received the Nobel Prize in chemistry for their studies on the structure of amino acids and proteins.
During the workshop, Dr. Norrby said young people need expert guidance in their research and scientific careers to achieve success as future innovators and to find a place in the list of Noble Prize winners. He also stressed the need for self-development through knowledge pursuits, and called for efforts in development of research initiatives as well as creation of motivating environment to build innovative generations in the areas of science and knowledge.
The third and last workshop in the series on March 13 will highlight the experience of Nobel Laureates in Physiology and Medicine.
MBRF is organising the Nobel Museum Exhibition in Dubai for the second consecutive year. This year, the exhibition is being held under the theme, ‘Exploring Life: Noble Prize in Physiology or Medicine’ until March 21st at the Children’s City in Dubai Creek Park.
