This year's "Nobel Calling" event, organized around the Nobel Prize announcements, witnessed a plethora of activities and talks presented by Stockholm University. Running between 28th September and 9th October, this initiative was chiefly organized by the Nobel Prize Museum, with significant contributions from multiple institutions, including Stockholm University.

One of the highlights of Stockholm University's participation was the public access provided to one of their DNA labs at the Centre for Paleogenetics (CPG). Here, attendees learned about the profound research on ancient DNA from various sources. This was complemented by a public lecture at the Nobel Prize Museum by Prof. Love Dalén from Stockholm University, focusing on technological advancements in studying ancient DNA. Drawing on the Nobel-winning work of Svante Pääbos, Dalén emphasized CPG's pioneering work in analyzing DNA over a million years old.

Another stimulating panel discussion, jointly organized with Karolinska Institutet, KTH, and the Swedish Research Council, pondered the intriguing question: "Can AI get the Nobel Prize?" with Stockholm University's Prof. Åsa Wikforss among the panelists.

Stockholm University also hosted a literature-based conversation ahead of the literature prize announcement and ran an engaging Instagram competition about inspiring Nobel laureates.
