Since 1951, the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings have made a name for themself as a unique international scientific forum, enabling exchange between generations, disciplines, and cultures. The theme of the Lindau Meetings alternates between the three Nobel Prize scientific disciplines – Physics, Chemistry or Physiology, and Medicine. This year’s meeting is dedicated to Physiology and Medicine and the main issues under discussion will be diversity in science, artificial intelligence in medicine and the impact of climate change on health.
