The Office of Science (SC) is in the third year of a program that sends students to the annual meeting of Nobel Laureates in Lindau, Germany. This year's meeting took place the first week of July and was focused on the chemical sciences. The Editor of Chemical & Engineering News (C&EN), Madeleine Jacobs, attended the meeting and has published a feature article on the meeting and the SC program in the August 19 issue of the magazine. The article describes the meeting and presents highlights from the lectures and panel discussions and contains quotes from several students about their experience in Lindau. The support for 37 students attending the meeting by SC and the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education and its parent the Oak Ridge Associated Universities is credited in the article. C&EN is published by the American Chemical Society and has the largest circulation of any weekly science news magazine.
