We will take you on a great journey from the subatomic world of neutrinos to the molecular world of RNA. 
Although these two fields seem quite different, they have one thing in common: Both are explaining the reason of our existence! You will learn more about neutrinos, the most abundant matter particle in the universe, as well as about RNA, which is one of the most important molecules in human body for keeping genetic information safe.  We are looking forward to seeing you all there, in an event where physics meet biology! :-D

Neutrinos - the reason we exist?

Alfons Weber (Prof. Dr., Mainz University & Oxford University)
Neutrinos are the most abundant matter particle in the universe, but few people are aware of them and very little is known about them. The speaker will give an introduction on how neutrinos entered the world of physics and why they may be the very reason for our existence.

The life of RNA

Julian König (Group Leader, Institute of Molecular Biology, Mainz)
Kathi Zarnack (Group Leader, Frankfurt University)
RNA is the central molecule that helps to decode our genomes. The speakers will take you on a journey explaining the role and function of these molecules and the implications to human health and disease.
