A Nobel Story – Renowned Nobel Prize Chair Emeritus to Deliver Presentation


Lindahl.jpgWinning a Nobel Prize is the pinnacle of achievement in the areas of physics, chemistry, physiology, medicine, literature, and peace. While most people know that the Nobel Prize is an international award that recognizes remarkable work, few know how Nobel Laureates are selected and the fascinating behind-the-scenes stories about the prize.

On Monday, June 13, the community is invited to hear from a Nobel Prize insider, Sten GE Lindahl, MD, PhD, FRCA, chair emeritus of the Nobel Committee in Physiology or Medicine, former member of the Nobel Foundation board of trustees, and professor emeritus at Karolinska Institute. In his work on the Nobel Committee, Dr. Lindahl was part of a group responsible for selecting the Nobel Medicine Prize winners from the pool of nominees. Dr. Lindahl’s presentation, Beyond Borders – a Nobel Prize Story, will touch on interesting aspects of the prize and the stories behind its selection.

The presentation, sponsored by EMMC’s Anesthesia Department, will begin at 6 pm at Minsky Hall on the University of Maine campus and will be followed by a reception. There is no cost to attend. For more information, please call 973-9500. For a University of Maine campus map, please click here.
