April 23, 2010

During the 147th annual meeting of the National Academy of Sciences, six NAS members who have won a Nobel Prize in their fields, five in 2009, will participate in a roundtable discussion about their award-winning work as well as their family background, early education, and the factors that led them to pursue a career in science. The audience will include scientists, students from local high schools, and general public.

DETAILS: 2:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. in the Cherry Blossom Ballroom at the Gaylord National Hotel & Convention Center, 201 Waterfront St., National Harbor, Md. Reporters who wish to attend must register in advance with Maureen O'Leary in the Office of News and Public Information; tel. 202-334-2138 or e-mail news@nas.edu.
