Nathalie Bock selected to meet Nobel Laureates in Tokyo

Dr Nathalie Bock has been invited to attend the 9th Japan Society for the Promotion of Science HOPE meeting in Tokyo in February 2017. She is one of six Australian graduate students given the opportunity to engage in interdisciplinary discussions with Nobel Laureates and other distinguished scientists.

HOPE Meetings provide opportunities to excellent graduate students selected from countries and areas in the Asia-Pacific and Africa region to engage in interdisciplinary discussions with Nobel Laureates and other distinguished scientists pioneering the frontiers to knowledge.

Nathalie hopes the meeting will provide inspiration, perspective and international networks to progress her research into bioengineered prostate cancer tumour models used to investigate responses to therapies. 

At the HOPE Meeting, Nathalie will attend the Nobel Prize Dialogue Tokyo 2017 on the first day of the program. She will actively join the event by asking questions at the Q&A sessions after the lectures and a panel discussion on “The Future of Intelligence ”, and thus contributed to the symposium.

The formal reception of Nobel Prize Dialogue Tokyo 2017 and the 9th HOPE Meeting will be jointly held in the presence of Their Majesties the Emperor and Empress in the evening.
