Chemistry graduate student attends Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting

Jonathan Litz, a  graduate student in the research group of Assistant Professor David Masiello, recently attended the 2012 Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetingin Germany as a representative of the University of Washington. Jonathan was selected for this prestigious honor by the National Science Foundation. Since 1951, Nobel Prize winners and students in chemistry, physics, physiology and medicine have met annually in Lindau, located on Lake Constance in southwestern Germany. Approximately 550 students from over 70 countries attended the week-long meeting this year. The meeting consisted of formal lectures and an opportunity for students to meet informally with Nobel Laureate scientists, as well as with fellow students from around the world. Jonathan is pictured with Walter Kohn, a recipient of the 1998 Nobel Prize in chemistry “for his development of the density-functional theory.”
