Giulia Enders

“According to Albert Einstein, the highest form of research is the game. So a good question is: What is dance then? This and other things you can think about, while gliding fancy dressed and tipsy in the Viennese ballroom. I also heard the food should be great and the audience cosmopolitan – how elegant!”

Giulia Enders studied medicine and wrote a bestseller. Her book “Gut: The Inside Story of Our Body’s Most Underrated Organ” was the best-selling hardcover non-fiction book in Germany in 2014 with over one million copies. Now she is writing her doctoral thesis in Gastroenterology at the University Hospital Frankfurt am Main. Giulia is the winner of the 2017 Heinz Oberhummer Award for Science Communication 2017 which she will receive on November 25, 2017, in Vienna.
