Two graduate students at Missouri University of Science and Technology are in Lindau, Germany, for a meeting between Nobel laureates and students. The meeting started June 27 and will conclude July 2.
Aaron LaForge and Meghan McGrath are among 75 extraordinary graduate student researchers from the United States selected to attend the 2010 Lindau Meeting of Nobel Laureates and Students. Since 1951, Nobel laureates have annually convened in Lindau to have open and informal meetings with students and young researchers from around the world.
The laureates lecture on topics of their choice in the mornings and have discussions with small groups of students in the afternoons and evenings.
At S&T, LaForge’s research specialty is atomic physics. McGrath is researching advanced high strength steels. LaForge is from Nixa, Mo. McGrath is from St. Louis.
