Since 1951, the Lindau Meetings have enabled scientists from different generations, cultures and backgrounds to exchange ideas. This year, 600 promising undergraduates, PhD students, and post-doc researchers from around the world will meet 41 Nobel Laureates, including Dr. Elizabeth Blackburn and Dr. Louis Joseph Ignarro. Held each year, the meetings focus alternately on physiology, medicine, physics, and chemistry.
