Congrats to Jia Min for being selected to participate in the 71th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting (Chemistry)

March 25, 2021

The Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings, established since 1951, is a globally recognised exchange that serves as a platform for Nobel Laureates and young scientists worldwide to engage in knowledgeable crosstalk . Post NTU TRACS’ nomination and Prof Yeong’s recommendation, Dr Lee underwent a multi-step application and selection process to attend this prestigious event. Applicants were reviewed by the scientific review panel of the Council for the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings based on their academic and research achievements, motivation and dedication to research work and other extracurricular activities. After 6 months of evaluation, Dr Lee was selected to participate in the 71th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting (Chemistry) in Germany from 26 June to 1 July 2022 with other international young scientist. Dr Lee hopes to establish future international research collaboration with fellow young scientists and Nobel laureates during the 6 day event in the field of chemistry and related discipline.
