U sklopu svog posjeta Splitu, Nobelovac Sir Paul Nurse posjetio je naš fakultet. Tom prigodom se susreo s Dekanom i njegovim suradnicima. Razgledao je zgrade Fakulteta, posjetio laboratorije, te na kraju ručao sa studentima.
Koristimo priliku da još jednom podsjetimo na predavanje Znanost kao revolucija, koje će Sir Nurse, danas, u 18 sati, održati u svečanom amfiteatru Ekonomskog fakulteta.
