Meeting of the Minds: Graduate Students to Rub Shoulders With Nobel Laureates

 

Two Rutgers doctoral students will rub shoulders with the elites in their fields this summer as guests of the 60th Annual Nobel Laureate Meeting at Lindau, Germany.

BRIAN TICE
Brian Tice of Wenonah, a graduate student in physics and astronomy, and Michael Drahl of Belvidere, who is studying chemistry and chemical biology, are among 75 selected to attend the annual gathering of the world’s most esteemed scientists in chemistry, physics and physiology/medicine June 27 to July 2. Both students are finishing their second year of graduate study at Rutgers.

MICHAEL DRAHL 
Since 1951, Nobel Laureates have met annually with students and young researchers in this German city for a series of panel discussions, seminars and social events. The students are sponsored by various agencies and organizations, including the United States Department of Energy, National Science Foundation and National Institutes of Health.

This is the first time Rutgers will send two students to the Lindau Meeting. The last to go was Tim Koeth in 2004. Read more about Tice and Drahl.
