Amy Ensign and Lisa Carlson attend the 57th Meeting of Nobel Laureates and Graduate Students in Lindau, Germany


Chemistry graduate students Amy Ensign and Lisa Carlson were selected to participate in the US student delegation of the 57th Meeting of Nobel Laureates and Graduate Students in Lindau, Germany. Since 1951, Nobel Laureates in chemistry, physics, and physiology/medicine have convened annually in Lindau, Germany, for open and informal meetings with young researchers. The Laureates lecture on a topic of their choice in the mornings and participate in less formal, small-group discussions with students in the afternoons and some evenings. Amy and Lisa, under the auspices of the National Science Foundation and the Department of Energy, respectively, will be part of a delegation of the nation's top young student researchers at the meeting in July 2007. Amy is a member of the Krauss and Bren research groups and Lisa is a member of the Krauss research group at Rochester.
