I was the only one nominated candidate from Bangladesh Academy of Science to participate in the 68th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meet 2018, which was dedicated for Physiology & Medicine. This year, 43 Nobel Laureates came to Lindau to meet with the next generation of leading Scientists. Almost 600 Young Scientists & Researchers from around 84 countries selected to attend in this meet, & I’m very lucky & proud, that Lindau Nobel Council selected me as the “Young Scientist from Bangladesh.” The selection was no doubt but very tough! I selected there because of my 43 Scholarly articles in Medical Sciences.
I got the great news about my final selection on the 28th February 2018, and then & then, I went to Bangladesh Academy of Science with my father. I met there with Professor Sir Naiyyum Chowdhury & then with Professor Dr. Abdul Mazed Sir, he advised me a lot regarding this, he told me that I will get a travel grant from Bangladesh Academy of Science & North American Bangladesh Islamic Community to attend in this Science Meet.
On 11th April, 2018, I got The BAS-NABIC YOUNG SCIENTIST GRANT AWARD 2018.
Undoubtedly, Lindau was the best week in my life.. I’ve mentioned here the important events.
