ULB honors Nobel Laureate Jules Bordet

In 2019, the ULB honors one of its most prestigious scholars, Jules Bordet, who was awarded the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 1919 for his work on immunity. The exhibition will open on Wednesday, October 8 and will remain open to the public until December 21.

The exhibition “The 100th anniversary of a Nobel Prize winner, Jules Bordet, a pastor at the ULB” retraces the path and discoveries of this great researcher in immunology, through historical documents, scientific objects and works of art , movies and photographs. The exhibition presents, in a clear and accessible way, his fundamental discoveries in the fight against infectious diseases.

Based on research by Jules Bordet, the exhibition highlights the drivers of experimental research: curiosity, rigor, imagination, the performance of tools and sometimes luck. Finally, it evokes the scientific diplomacy of the early 20th century and the current debates of society around the detection and prevention of transmittable  diseases.

Over the course of the exhibition, proposals from artists from bio-art will stimulate reflection and debate around current uses of biotechnology.
