Brown ’13, M21, biochem, to Attend Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting

Brian Brown ’13, M21, biochemistry and molecular biology, will travel to Germany next week to attend the 63rd Annual Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting.

The meeting, which will be held June 30- July 5, will bring thirty-five Nobel Laureates together to meet the next generation of leading scientists and researchers. More than 600 young researchers from nearly 80 countries will attend.

‘‘I am impressed and carried away by the competence, curiosity and energy of the young participants – networking, discussing, asking the right questions. This makes me think confidently about the perspectives of a global scientific community’’, said Hartmut Michel, a Nobel Laureate in Chemistry.

Brown attended UMBC as a Meyerhoff Scholar and is a member of the Phi Beta Kappa and Phi Kappa Phi Honor Societies. He twice received UMBC Undergraduate Research Awards. This fall, he will begin pursuing his M.D./Ph.D. at the New York University School of Medicine.
