In the course of the NAUKA 0+ all-Russian festival, Thomas Lindahl, the Nobel Laureate in Chemistry in 2015 visited Saint Petersburg. On September 16, he spoke at Saint Petersburg State University, where he talked about his research of DNA “repair” and probable causes of cancers in humans.
An extensive cultural programme was prepared for the eminent guest, organised by INNO-MIR.
Swedish-British biochemist Thomas Lindahl shared the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2015 with his American colleagues, Aziz Sancar and Paul Modrich for studying DNA repair mechanisms. Scientists have discovered a mechanism by which cells find errors in the genome and correct them, using the damaged DNA chain as a sample.
You can learn more about lecture of Thomas Lindahl at university on the Saint Petersburg State University website.
