Dr. Rushita Bagchi (formerly of the Czubryt lab), has been formally accepted to attend the Lindau Nobel Laureate meeting in Lindau, Germany this coming June. There will be 600 delegates from around the world (84 countries), and 43 Laureates meeting with them over the course of a week. Dr. Bagchi is the first delegate from the University of Manitoba (she was selected as the nominee for 2016 at the Canadian Student Health Research Forum, held in Winnipeg each June).
The Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings foster the exchange among scientists of different generations, cultures, and disciplines. The meetings focus alternately on physiology and medicine, on physics, and on chemistry – the three natural science Nobel Prize disciplines. An interdisciplinary meeting revolving around all three natural sciences is held every five years. The scientific programme of each Lindau Meeting is based on the principle of dialogue. The different sessions – lectures, discussions, master classes, and panel discussions – are designed to activate the exchange of knowledge, ideas, and experience between and among Nobel Laureates and young scientists.
Congratulations to Dr. Bagchi for this amazing opportunity!
