I went to Rudbeckslaboratoriet in Uppsala Science Park, on September 27 during lunch time. I found this event through the forum on studentportalen, posted by Serdar. During the event, I met with Peter Bergsten and Helena Danielson. The experience was kinda boring but I learned a few useful things – for example Peter said that his biggest mistake was to discuss the research results that he was about to patent and that his talk mate published the results. Peter said that he really enjoys discussing these research subjects and that he should have been more careful.

Both Peter and Helena were doing presentations, and Helena told during her presentation that she really enjoys answering the question “why?” and that this is what drives her and motivates her. So during the question session, I asked “why are you interested in answering the question ‘why’?”. Everybody laughed, and she said that nobody asked that question before. After thinking for a while, she said something along the lines of “I don’t know, that’s just the way it is” and “sometimes I’m being curious when I know I shouldn’t be”.
