Three researchers from King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) are among some 600 young scientists from around the world invited to attend the 72nd Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings, June 25-30, 2023. Asma Al-Amoodi, Walaa Khushaim and Hajar Al-Zarah are recognized for excellence in the fields of bioscience and bioengineering. The students are pursuing doctoral degrees in the KAUST Biological and Environmental Science and Engineering (BESE) Division.
For more than seven decades, the small German town of Lindau on Lake Constance has hosted the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings for science’s brightest minds. The annual forum was launched in 1951 by Franz Karl Hein and Gustav Wilhelm Parade and opened itself up to graduates, Ph.D. students and postdoctoral researchers two years later. Each meeting revolves around a different scientific focal point. The 72nd edition is dedicated to physiology and medicine, with around 40 Nobel Laureates expected to contribute to a wide-ranging program of discussions and activities.
