Uppsala University's Disciplinary Domain of Medicine and Pharmacy presents the 2018 Göran Gustafsson lecture with Edvard Moser. Professor Moser is a world-renowned Norwegian scientist that, together with his wife, was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 2014 for their discoveries of cells that constitute a positioning system in the brain. Moser's research has clarified how the brain works when we orient ourselves, which can, for example, increase our understanding of how Alzheimer's disease occurs.

Edvard Moser studied psychology at the University of Oslo before receiving a PhD in neurophysiology in 1995. After stays at the University of Edinburgh and University College London, Professor Moser moved to the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim. Edvard Moser is currently professor of neuroscience and director of the Kavli Institute for Systems Neuroscience in Trondheim.
