Event by Novo Nordisk Foundation Science Cluster

    Visit to Medical Museion

    Medical Museion is a combined museum and research unit at the University of Copenhagen. We will visit the current exhibitions “The Body Collected” and “Mind the gut!” and get a taklk from Adam Bencard. Adam Bencard is Associate Professor in Medical Humanities at the Medical Museion in Copenhagen, and affiliated with The Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Basic Metabolic Research. His work is split evenly between practical science communication (mainly curating exhibitions, most recently the exhibition Mind the Gut at the Medical Museion) and medical humanities research. His current research interest is focused on the cultural and philosophical impact of microbiome research, and what it means to be human in a post-genomic world.
