Cork researcher to meet Nobel laureates

Wednesday, 6th June, 2018 3:45pm

A Cork researcher has been selected to represent Ireland at a global scientific conference this month.

Researcher David Burns from Tower is the only Corkman representing Ireland at the 68th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings in Germany in June. He is one of just three Irish researchers to be chosen, along with ShuaiShuai Hu, based at DIT, and Emer Duffy, studying at DCU.

Supported by the Irish Research Council, David will meet with 41 Nobel laureates and will be among 600 other scientists from 84 different countries across the world.

David is a PhD candidate based in UCC who is working to improve the control of breathing in neuromuscular disease. He was selected after a highly competitive multi-stage, international application process managed by the Lindau Nobel Meeting Foundation.

Peter Brown, Director of the Irish Research Council, said: “We are delighted to support David on his visit to Lindau this summer. It is a fantastic opportunity for researchers to mix with the best and brightest in their fields of research at this early stage of their careers.

“The most impressive and outstanding young scientists are chosen to attend these prestigious meetings and we are extremely proud that three highly-talented researchers from Ireland are amongst their number.”
