Refectory of Augustinian Abbey
Mendlovo namesti 1a, Brno
The first series of Mendel Lectures was in 2003, when it was devoted to the 50th anniversary of the discovery of DNA. Since then, Brno has been visited by 50 scientists, including Nobel Prize winners. The lectures held in the refectory of the Augustinian Abbey in Old Brno – the very place where Mendel, the founder of genetics, worked almost 200 years ago – are attended annually by almost one thousand undergraduates, PhD students and scientists, who meet leading figures of science for whom otherwise they would have to travel the world. Valuable contacts are made at the event.
Anna and Kim Nasmyth, Gustav Ammerer, prof. Jan Motlik and prof. Jirina Relichova for initiating, supporting and co-organizing the Mendel Lectures series.
