The selection process for participation at this year’s Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting has been completed and award-winning Dalhousie PhD graduate Simon Gebremeskel has all but booked his flight.  

“I am deeply honoured to be invited to attend the Lindau Nobel Laureate meeting. This is a recognition of many years of hard work, not just by me, but by the Johnston lab team and our collaborators,” says Gebremeskel who, as top-prize winner at last year’s Canadian Student Health Research Forum, earned himself a coveted nomination to attend the 68th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting taking place in Lindau, Germany.

This week, that nomination was confirmed when the scientific review panel of the Council for the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings emailed Gebremeskel and offered him a seat at the table. A total of 600 outstanding students, doctoral candidates and post-docs under the age of 35 will come together from 24 to 29 June to meet the next generation of leading scientists.
