Young Bangladeshi Scientists meet Nobel Laureates at Lindau Germany

Prof. Ahmad Islam (Retd.)
Austin, USA, GNOBB.ORG homepage report

July 20, ’07. Led by Prof. Zafar Iqbal at Shah Jalal university S&T (SUST), six young Bangladeshi scientists in the filed of biology, namely, Minhaz Ahmed, Ms. Jakia Amin, Ms. Sutapa Barua, Khademul Islam, Touhidul Islam and Ms. Ayshea Sania attended the Lindau Nobel Laureate meeting July 1 through 6. This is the first time that young Bangladeshi scientists got this unique opportunity to be a part of this assembly of 560 young scientists from 63 countries. Fourteen Nobel Laureates addressed this unique gathering of young scientists in the field of physiology and medicine in Lindau, Germany situated on the shore of Constance. The awe-inspiring talks and exposure to their company have sparked the imagination of the young scientists and strengthened their determination to follow the footsteps of Nobel Laureates in becoming future leaders in their respective areas of specialization. While we expect that these extremely talented Bangladeshi young men and women scientists to engage themselves deep in their research projects, and carryout cutting edge researches, we request the government machinery to provide them all modern basic equipment necessary for such high quality original work so that they remain within the country instead of migrating to a foreign soil.
