Dr.Ochwang’i Dominic Omosa, PhD who  is a lecturer in the Department of Veterinary Anatomy and Physiology, Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, CAVS has been selected to attend the  68th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting at  Lake Constance, Germany  from 24 to 29 June,2018. A total of 600 outstanding students, doctoral candidates and post-docs under the age of 35 will attend this year’s meeting which is dedicated to physiology and medicine and will set two records: 43 Nobel Laureates – more than ever before at a medicine meeting – will take part, and the field of participants, with 84 countries of origin, has never been so diverse.

More than 130 academic partners worldwide – academies, universities and foundations – nominated the candidates for participation after internal application procedures. “I have rarely had the pleasure of evaluating such a diverse and high-quality group, which made the selection difficult,” says Stefan H.E. Kaufmann, Professor of Microbiology and Immunology at the Charité in Berlin and Director at the Max Planck Institute of Infection Biology. Dr.Ochwang’i was nominated by African Academy of Sciences and University of Nairobi and underwent a highly competitive process to be selected. Three newly minted Nobel Laureates will come to Lindau in 2018: the two biologists Michael Rosbash and Michael Young, who were honoured for their research on the inner clock, as well as the German-American chemist Joachim Frank. Alongside the inner clock, the key topics of the 68th Lindau Meeting are the role of science in a ‘post-factual era’, gene therapy and scientific publishing practices.

This is the first time a young scientist from the University of Nairobi has been selected to attend this meeting. We congulatulate him for this achievement.
