Venki Ramakrishnan (India/United States) won the 2009 Nobel Prize for Chemistry for his work on molecular biology, which includes studies into the advanced compression of the atomic structure of the ribosome, the so-called “mother of all molecules”. He covered this topic extensively in his book Gene Machine. He has recently written Why We Die: The New Science of Ageing and the Quest for Immortality. At this event he will talk about these two works with Carlos Serrano.
