Ashland Biology alumna attending the 61st Nobel Laureate Meetings in Lindau, Germany

Becky Richards speaking at AU in 2010
Becky Richards '04, a combined MD/PhD student at Oregon Health Sciences University, was selected as one of the 570 students out of 20,000 applicants to attend this year's meeting of Nobel laureates in Lindau, Germany.  This annual meeting allows young researchers from around the world to discuss science with 25 Nobel Laureates.  Becky will be blogging about this amazing experience, and has just written her first post.

Having recently submitted the final edits to her doctoral dissertation, Becky will be rejoining the 3rd year of medical school after travels through Europe this summer.

You can learn more about Becky's research in this previous post about her visit to the AU campus in 2010.  And if you would like to follow the Lindau Conference you can follow a special social media page here.  While we are not all fortunate to attend the conference itself, lectures from the Laureates are available online.  The theme of this year's conference is physiology and medicine.
