Two University of Queensland researchers have been selected to attend the 72nd Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting in Germany in June.
Dr Enakshi Sinniah from the Institute of Molecular Bioscience and Dr David Klyne from the School of Health and Rehabilitation Services will join 635 young scientists from around the world at this year’s event, which will focus on Medicine and Physiology.
Established in 1951, the prestigious event offers a valuable opportunity for early-career researchers to learn from and network with 40 Nobel Laureates and to exchange knowledge and ideas.
Dr Sinniah is researching stem cells and cardiovascular development, and Dr Klyne is investigating why chronic pain develops and how to prevent it.
Their participation in the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings is supported through a fellowship by the Science and Industry Endowment Fund (SIEF) and administered by the Australian Academy of Science (AAS).
The SIEF-AAS Fellowship will enable Dr Klyne and Dr Sinniah to attend the distinguished event and take part in the SIEF Research Innovation Tour in Berlin, with some of Germany’s finest research and development facilities related to medicine and physiology on showcase.
