Gratis foredrag med the founder of the Ig Nobel Prize, Marc Abrahams, and three price winners.

The Ig Nobel Prize is awarded for “peculiar research” that at first makes us laugh and then think deeply. Attend this lecture for a humour-filled dive into the prize-winning research. Meet Marc Abrahams and some of the recent prize winners.

The lecture is taught in English/Foredraget afholdes på engelsk.

Meet some of the researchers who have received the alternative Nobel Prize – the Ig Nobel Prize.
It is hard to describe the Ig Nobel Prize and the lectures of the price winners in particular –you need to experience it.

The award ceremony takes place every year in a blaze of publicity at a great gala ceremony at Harvard University, USA and is orchestrated by the founder of the prize, Marc Abrahams.

The Ig Nobel Prize highlights ten research results of the year that are exceptionally creative, unlikely and bizarre, though still serious. To put it in another way: The prize is awarded to “peculiar research” that initially makes us laugh and afterwards gives us food for thought.

The prize covers a wide range of sciences, yet with the main emphasis on natural science, medicine, and social science. In general, the prizes are given to respected and serious research that has been published in peer-reviewed scientific journals.

The evening begins with a short lecture from the founder, Marc Abrahams, who will talk about the prize, the ceremony at Harvard University and some of the recent prize winners and their research “which neither can or should be repeated”. Later on, the three Ig Nobel Prize winners below will explain and perhaps demonstrate their prize-winning achievements:

Sindre Eftestøl, Oslo University – for testing how reindeer react to seeing humans who are disguised as polar bears. The research won The 2014 Ig Nobel Prize in Arctic Science.

Eva Bertilsson – for using a simple animal-training technique – called “clicker training” – to train surgeons to perform orthopedic surgery. The research won The 2019 Ig Nobel Prize in Medical Education.

Peter Witzgall, University of Munich and University of Swedish Agricultural Sciences – for demonstrating that wine experts can reliably identify, by smell, the presence of a single fly in a glass of wine. The research won The 2018 Ig Nobel Prize in Biology.

Gratis foredrag med professor i genomforskning Oluf Borbye Pedersen, Københavns Universitet.

Ny forskning viser at mikrober i vores tarm, på vores hud og i vores hulrum påvirker vores helbred fra det sekund vi kommer til verden. Hør om hvordan du styrker dine mikroorganismer så de optimerer dit immunforsvar, din fordøjelse og din mentale balance.

Professor Oluf Borbye Pedersen tager os med ind i et ufatteligt stort og fascinerende univers af bittesmå organismer, mikrober: nu taler vi ikke længere kun om bakterier i tarmen, men også om farvestrålende vira, svampe, arkæer og bakteriofager som er på vores hud og som fylder alle vores kroppes hulrum fra luftveje, fordøjelseskanal til vagina, og som påvirker vores helbred fra det sekund vi kommer til verden.

Mange mennesker er bange for deres billioner af personlige mikrober der kan gøre os syge og slå os ihjel, men langt de fleste mikrober gavner os tværtimod og har magt til at holde os raske hvis vi forstår hvad de vil med os.

Ny forskning viser hvordan vi med en sund livsstil og et naturligt forhold til mikrober kan berige og forstærke vores uundgåelige mikroorganismer så de optimerer vores immunforsvar, fordøjelse, energi og mentale balance.

Inden for de seneste få år har forskere fået mistanke om at ”rod” i vores mikrober og mangel på mikrober kan være medvirkende årsag til udvikling af fx Alzheimer, depression, Parkinsons sygdom, skizofreni, anoreksi, kroniske tarmsygdomme, træthedssyndromer, astma, allergi, overvægt og diabetes.

Nu leder forskerne intensivt efter nye effektive måder at forebygge og behandle disse sygdomme med hjælp fra de magtfulde mikrober.
