Paola Laurino - The Provost Lecture Series 4
On January 24th, 2023 Paola Laurino gave a lecture titled "From so simple a beginning". Abstract: From an empty space in September 2017, we built up the Protein Engineering and Evolution Unit. Thanks to OIST support in these last five years, we took over high-risk projects that led to significant discoveries. Among these projects, I will discuss a new system established in our laboratory that changes our view of enzyme performance in natural conditions.

What would you EAT for a sustainable future? Plant-based food and the possibility
Throughout the world, vegan and plant-based cuisine has been attracting attention for its potential both as a developing market and as a sustainable choice. But what is driving all this interest and market growth? And what great vegan food can be enjoyed in Japan? With over 10 years of experience in the field, Haruko Kawano of VegeProject Japan will tell us about global trends, the context of this rising demand, and how to incorporate veganism into our diets. Climate change, environmental problems stretching from land to sea, and of course human health, peace, and animal welfare: the issues we face as a world are many. How do our food choices impact them, and what is the potential of vegan and plant-based diets? Let’s explore these questions together. Photo: OIST/Jeff Prine Licensed under CC4.0 (attribution)
