The programme features lectures by Laureates on topics like "Why I love
microbes" (Richard Roberts, Nobel Prize Physiology or Medicine 1993), "The
Cell Cycle and Cancer" (Sir Timothy Hunt, Physiologie oder Medizin 2001) and
"Why do we not have a vaccine against TB or HIV (yet)?" (Rolf Zinkernagel,
Physiology or Medicine 1996). Two podium discussions from the 57th Meeting of
Nobel Laureates will also be broadcast: "Basic Science in Molecular Medicine"
(CEST/Tuesday, July 3rd at 10.50 am) and "Medical Sciences and Society"
(CEST/Thursday, July 4th, 11.30 am).
Thanks to the support given by the International Lake Constance
Conference (IBK) and the Free State of Bavaria, viewers from all around the
world with an interest in science will be able to "attend" the Lindau dialogue
24 hours a day and with unrestricted access. The broadcasts will give
incomparable insights into the lectures on research as they happen and the
work carried out by the Nobel Laureates. All the contents will remain on the
