In what way can we optimize our body? In what way can we avoid or improve functions and senses in the body?

Science Today takes the temperature of science in 2023 and invites you to an afterwork where, doctoral students and postdocs from Karolinska Institute (KI), KTH Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) and Stockholm University (SU) get the chance to present their research on stage.

Take part of the next Science Today at The Nobel Prize Museum when we explore the human body. The use and access to technology to understand our body has increased significantly – how do we view body rhythm in relation to technology?

This evening’s conversation takes place in English.
