Professor Ellis’ talks highlighted the importance of August Krogh’s findings on the current understanding of the microcirculation, but also challenged central aspects of Krogh’s model. This fits perfectly with Krogh’s strong belief that traditional dogmas should never get in the way of scientific progress.

The next August Krogh On Tour event will be on 4 May at University of Copenhagen with Professor Stephen O’Rahilly from University of Cambridge who is an award winning expert on human metabolic disorders such as obesity and type 2 diabetes.
