Yale Ph.D. Student Learns from Nobel Laureates at 2018 Lindau-Nobel Meeting

Every summer, the Lindau Nobel Laureates Meeting brings together hundreds of young scientists from around the world for a week of exchange and discussion with Nobel Laureates in Lindau, Germany, alternating each year between the fields of physics, physiology and medicine, chemistry, and economic sciences. The meetings aim to create lifelong connections between scientists of different backgrounds, generations, and cultures. This summer, Yale’s own Kayoko Shioda, a Ph.D. student at the School of Public Health, attended the event after being nominated by her home country of Japan. She was one of six-hundred young scientists selected in a competitive application process to meet with the thirty-nine Nobel Laureates in attendance.
