Two Nobel laureates discuss life and science with students recommended for admission to UM

The University of Macau (UM) today (20 January) invited Prof Aaron Ciechanover, the 2004 recipient of the Nobel Prize in chemistry, and Prof Arieh Warshel, the 2013 recipient of the Nobel Prize in chemistry, to give lectures to outstanding local students admitted by UM through the Principals’ Recommended Admission Scheme. 

UM this year admitted 398 students through the Principals’ Recommended Admission Scheme. The university hopes that the Nobel lectures can increase the students’ understanding of science, broaden their horizons, and prepare them for their studies at UM. 

During the lecture, Prof Ciechanover shared his life experiences with the students, saying that work is his hobby. He advised the students not to make ‘winning prizes’ their goal in what they do. 

Students were very excited to have the chance to interact with Nobel laureates. 

Prof Ciechanover today also gave another talk, on the latest breakthroughs in biomedical research, at UM’s Faculty of Health Sciences. The talk attracted hundreds of UM faculty members, students, scholars, researchers, and members of the public.
