Young Scientists to Meet with Well-Known Nobel Insider at EMMC


(Bangor, Maine) – The Nobel Prize may represent the highest level of achievement to a young scientist. On Monday, June 13, two accomplished local teen scientists will have an opportunity to learn all about the prize and how it is selected through a personal meeting with Sten Lindahl, MD, PhD, FRCA, chair emeritus of the Nobel Committee in Physiology or Medicine and a former member of the Nobel Foundation board of trustees.
The students, Paige Brown of Bangor, who recently won first place in the Intel Science Talent Search national competition, and Demetri Maxim, a Gould Academy student and a finalist in the competition, will talk to Dr. Lindahl about their projects and future goals. Dr. Lindahl will answer questions and share insight obtained during his extensive work with the Nobel Committee.


Members of the media interested in talking to the students and Dr. Lindahl are invited to come by EMMC at noon. Please RSVP by calling 973-9530 or e-mailing
