The 55th annual Meeting of Nobel Laureates took place at the end of June in Lindau, Germany. Seven hundred students from fifty countries and 45 Nobel Prize winners in Chemistry, Physics or Physiology or Medicine were present for the week-long meeting. The July 14 issue of Nature includes a two-page feature article that quotes students and laureates about the value of the meeting to them. The Office of Science (SC) has sponsored graduate students to attend the meeting for six years, and this year supported 26 students carrying out research on SC-funded projects at universities and DOE National Laboratories.
