Three Nobel Prize laureates and several top researchers are participating in Molecular Frontiers, a two-day scientific conference that started in Budapest, organisers said.

Molecular events underpin much of what happens in our daily lives and on our planet. Everything from the storage of memories in our brains to medical diagnostics and climate change all depends on molecular actions. Aiming to raise appreciation for science and technology, Molecular Frontiers presents the roles of molecules in various exciting contexts, especially catering to young people.

The conference focuses on interdisciplinary research in protein sciences and pharmacology, with a view to connecting young scientists and the older generation, event organizer Tamás Beke-Somfai said. The agenda included lectures by three Nobel Prize winners, namely – Kurt Wüthrich (chemistry), Arieh Warshel (chemistry) and Tim Hunt (medicine).
