SCIENTIFIC EVENTS FOR THE GENERAL PUBLIC

“Die Lange Nacht der Wissenschaften“ (Long night of science), Nuernberg metropolitan area, Germany

 

Structural biology related lectures and demonstrations to the general public to introduce them to our research areas. This is held once every two years. I volunteered this event in 2009, 2011 and 2013. LINK

Indo-German International Club, Erlangen, Germany

One of my interests is to revisit the therapeutic potential of natural compounds. These compounds were tried and tested over many centuries and show excellent anti-viral and anti-microbial activities. Ayurveda or "The Science of Life", which originated in India more than 5000 years ago has documented thousands of these healing herbs. As part of my research on these compounds, I held classes and workshops on Ayurvedic herbs to the Indo-German population in Erlangen, Germany.
