The IMAX file “Amazon Adventure” tells the epic story of explorer Henry Bates on his expedition in the Amazon which allowed him to make crucial contributions to biology. He identified 8,000 new species and, most importantly, putting forth the first ever case for the creation of a new species, which Charles Darwin called the “beautiful proof” for natural selection.
Travel through the exuberant Amazon region and experience, together with Bates, the danger, the perseverance and the success in a fascinating world where imitation is the surprising phenomenon with which an animal can adopt another's appearance and gain an edge in survival. Immerse yourself in the wild world of impressive beauty and captivating animal behaviour.]]>
The sample consists of 24 backlit panels with the female scientists whose research was transcendental for the development of alchemy in the first place and then of Chemistry. The exhibition describes the work of 39 women from Tapputi-Beletakallim (1200 B.C.), considered the first female chemist in history, to promising young women like Cristina Nevado.

The scientific progress over the last 30 years in particular opens exciting perspectives in terms of new vaccines, also for use in emergencies, such as Ebola. However, the pathway from discovery to sustainable implementation can be long and difficult: many years go by between finding the right antigens to make a vaccine work, showing that it is safe and financing all of the subsequent phases of vaccine development, getting the product licensed and finally used in national vaccine programs. And even if we have safe and effective vaccines, not all populations benefit equally- and some people have decided they no longer want to give them to their children.
The talk will illustrate these issues and open up the discussion about the value of vaccines for the individual, public health and global societies, and how we might get to a place where the WHO vision of vaccines for everyone, everywhere might eventually be realised.
The conference will be taught in English with simultaneous translation
