Deskripsi Acara:

International Peace Foundation (IPF) is holding the 6th ASEAN event series “Bridges – Dialogues Towards a Culture of Peace” that will take place in Indonesia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam from January to March 2017, following the successful “Bridges” series which have been held in Thailand, the Philippines, Malaysia, Cambodia, Vietnam and Singapore since 2003. The ASEAN “Bridges” programs have been initiated and facilitated by the Vienna-based International Peace Foundation under the joint patronage of 20 Nobel Peace Prize Laureates. They stand in the tradition of the Peace Summits which have been held in Europe since 1993.
Universitas Indonesia as one of the IPF’s parters in Indonesia has an honor to welcome Prof. Sir Richard J. Roberts, the Chief Scientific Officer at England Biolabs in Massachusetts/USA, and the winner of the 1993 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for the discovery of introns in eukaryotic DNA and the mechanism of gene-splicing. These discoveries completely changed the way biologists thought about genes and led to decisive progress in many fields including cancer research.
Prof. Sir Richard J. Roberts will be talking about the unseen world of bacteria. Bacteria can be both our friends and foes; such as the Bifidobacteria that we find in yoghurt, and Yersinia pestis, the bacterium that caused the Black Death that decimated Europe in the Middle Ages. This unseen world is fascinating and is far richer and more complicated than the macroscopic world of animal and plants. Without these bugs we would be unable to survive on earth and yet we know rather little about them. We don’t even know how many different kinds there are.
The public lecture will be held at Balairung UI Campus, Depok, on February 8, 2016 starting at 2 PM. From this dialogue, the audience (especially UI students and lecturers) is expected to expand their knowledge regarding the world of bacteria.
