Charles Rice received the 2020 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for discovering the Hepatitis C virus.

The digital event on 15 June will explore the topic of "The Pathway to Scientific Impact – Challenges and Opportunities". Rice will share his thoughts on what scientific impact means, and how we can improve our chance of achieving this. His perspective will be personal, and he will share stories from his journey to the Nobel Prize. What led him to his ground-breaking discovery? How did he keep his motivation?

The conversation will be free-flowing, and you will have the chance to submit questions.

This online event is part of the Nobel Prize Inspiration Initiative (NPII), a global programme designed to help Nobel Laureates share their inspirational stories and insights. It is held in partnership with AstraZeneca. It is free and open to all, and we particularly encourage science students and early-career researchers in Poland to attend.
