Garvan student Rae-Anne Hardie, from Dr Darren Saunders' Ubiquitin Signalling research group, was one of fifteen outstanding young Australian scientists selected to participate in the International Day at the 64th Lindau Nobel Laureates Meetings, held today in Lindau, Germany.
The fifteen Australians chosen went through a rigorous selection process with the Australian Academy of Science and overall 20,000 researchers applied worldwide.
The young researchers joined other distinguished Australians, including Australian Nobel Laureates Prof Brian Schmidt, Prof Elizabeth Blackburn, Prof Barry Marshall and Prof Peter Doherty to form the official Australian delegation attending the meetings to display Australian scientific achievements on the world stage.
The 64th Lindau Nobel Laureates Meeting brought together 600 young researchers from 80 different countries to interact with giants in the fields of physiology and medicine and build networks with other researchers
The inspiring meetings have been held annually in Germany since 1951, to introduce Nobel Prize winners in chemistry, physiology, medicine and physics to younger generations of scientists.
Since 2004 the Australian Academy of Science has supported an annual delegation of outstanding young Australian researchers to participate in this exceptional educational, research and science diplomacy opportunity.
