Naturalis public lecture: ‘Sending a Message’

June 5 17:30-19:00 | Naturalis LiveScience

Join us for an exciting public lecture on “Sending a Message” at Naturalis on June 5th, from 17:30 to 19:00.

Discover the fascinating ways in which nature and human culture communicate, from communication between trees, to the language of cells in the human body, and even headdresses as a form of communication.

The speakers

Jane Stjeward-Schubert, co-founder of Tailors & Wearers, shares her expertise on the angisa. Learn about the design, meaning, folding techniques, and communication conveyed through this Afro-Surinamese cultural heritage.

Vincent Merckx, will be discussing the symbiotic relationship between plants and fungi. Discover how these fungi create an underground network that connects different plant species, a concept known as the ‘wood-wide-web.’

Andrea Capuano who is the product development engineer at EXIT071 will talk about exosomes. All cells in our body make exosomes to send messages to other cells. Cells pack these tiny bubbles with their own molecular information and excrete them into all body fluids – blood, urine and even tears!

This event is completely free, and open to all science enthusiasts in Leiden. Our goal is to share the excitement of science and bring like-minded individuals together. After the lecture, you’ll have the chance to mingle with fellow attendees and explore the LiveScience room in Naturalis, which will be open exclusively for our event.

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn about groundbreaking scientific research in Leiden and connect with others who share your passion.

We look forward to seeing you there!
