Seth Milder, a graduate student in the School of Computational Sciences (SCS), will participate this summer in the 51st Meeting of Nobel Laureates in Lindau, Germany, where he will meet and work with some of the best scientists in the world. “To be chosen for such a thing is a great honor, but somehow I just don’t feel worthy of it,” says Milder.
Since 1951, Nobel Laureates in the areas of chemistry, physics, and physiology/medicine have convened annually in Lindau to meet with students and young researchers. Students spend mornings attending lectures and afternoons meeting informally with the award-winning scientists.
The trip is administered and funded by the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education, which is operated under a contract with the Department of Energy and Oak Ridge Associated Universities. For more information on Oak Ridge Associated Universities, visit its web site at www.orau.org.
