Scotland is a progressive nation built on dynamism, creativity and the worldwide reputation for the warmth of its people. Its long intellectual history also makes it an ideal place for PRION2017. Great minds like Charles Darwin, David Hume, Adam Smith and Alexander Fleming were trained at its universities and medical institutions, and some of the world’s most creative writers and artists including Robert Burns, Arthur Conan Doyle, and JK Rowling flourished in its coffee houses and pubs. Edinburgh has also been home to notable developments in medicine, new technologies, and the life sciences, including Dolly the Sheep, stem cell research, and liver transplantation.
