For the ninth consecutive year, BioArctic invited students and teachers from the Rinkeby School in Stockholm and hosted a visit at the company. The Rinkeby School focuses every fall on a project work on the theme of Nobel, and the visit to BioArctic aims to stimulate curiosity about medical research.
The students who recently visited BioArctic had the opportunity to learn about diseases that affect the nervous system and how we at BioArctic develop new treatment for these, as well as learn more about the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine. This year’s prize to James P Allison and Tasuku Honjo for the detection of cancer treatment using antibody-based immunotherapy, is highly relevant to BioArctic’s activities. During the visit, students also had the opportunity to get a better feeling of how it is to work as a scientist at BioArctic by trying to conduct experiments under supervision in BioArctic’s laboratory.
