The Scheele Symposium
In honor of the world-renowned Swedish chemist and pharmacist Carl Wilhelm Scheele, the Swedish Academy of Pharmaceutical Sciences has since 1961 bestowed the Scheele Award on prominent scientists in the field of drug research or related disciplines. By tradition the award ceremony is accompanied by a symposium carrying the signature of the prize-winner.

The symposium focuses on various aspects of her research, including insights into the CRISPR-Cas technology, which has paved the way for development of new, effective treatments. Take this opportunity to listen to some of the world’s foremost scientists in genetic engineering.
