Last summer’s Nobel Prize Inspiration Initiative was immensely gratifying. We enjoyed warm-hearted meetings with Russian students, faculty colleagues, university leaders, and AstraZeneca scientists that were deeply fulfilling.

The white nights in Moscow and St Petersburg were unforgettable  even after our favorite dessert, vodka over vanilla ice cream.

I eagerly look forward to more NPII events and increased friendship with our Russian counterparts! I urge to you to visit the site and enjoy the clips from my trip to Russia and from the other NPII events!
