Our current newsletter featuring the latest news about the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings is available online.
The young scientists for the Master Classes and the Poster Session at the 69th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting have been selected. Out of 135 applications, the Nobel Laureates Albert Fert, Carl E. Wieman, Serge Haroche & David J. Wineland and Brian P. Schmidt have selected 14 young scientists who will have a chance to present their work during one of four Master Classes.
Based on 300 applications, 30 young scientists have been selected to present their work at the Poster Flashes and Poster Session – and to enter the poster contest. For the first time, a number of further qualified young scientists will have the chance to show their posters in a digital format during the meeting week. Like last year, the applications were pre-evaluated by Lindau Alumni peer reviewers.
A new Nobel Lab 360° is ready to be explored. In this virtual tour, 2014 Nobel Laureates in Physiology or Medicine May-Britt and Edvard Moser invite us to their laboratory at the Kavli Institute for Systems Neuroscience where they investigate how the brain creates time and location. Learn more about their research and get to know their students as well as Ra(t)vissant-the-Rat.
The submission period for both the Poster Sessions and the Master Classes is now closed. The Council for the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings has received more than 420 applications this year. 135 young scientists have applied for the unique chance to profoundly discuss their research with Nobel Laureates in one of four Master Classes. Out of almost 300 applicants, 30 young scientists will be selected to present their work at the Poster Flashes and Poster Sessions during the 69th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting.
Both the Master Classes and the Poster Session are established components of the meeting programme as ways to share and support the young scientists’ research. Like last year, the applications will now be pre-evaluated by a group of Lindau Alumni peer reviewers.
Our newest, three-part series of Mini Lectures sheds light on the topic vaccines. Learn more about the defense systems of our immune system and how vaccinations help prevent serious illnesses. The short videos also feature clippings from lectures by Nobel Laureates Bruce Beutler, Rolf Zinkernagel and Aaron Ciechanover.
We are excited to be part of the project “Once Upon a Try” by Google Arts & Culture – the largest online exhibition on scientific inventions and discoveries. Explore our ‘Sketches of Science’, ‘Nobel Heroes’ and the ‘Nobel Labs 360°’ to find out more about the Nobel Laureates and their research and learn more about the history of the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings.
The Council for the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings sent out the letters of acceptance to 580 outstanding undergraduates, PhD students and post-docs from 88 countries today.
From 30 June to 5 July 2019, the young scientists will come together with 42 Nobel Laureates in Lindau, Germany. This year’s 69th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting is dedicated to physics; key topics are cosmology, laser physics and gravitational waves.
