Talking with Amanda Amoah at the Nobel Laureate Meeting

Amanda Amoha Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting
July 29, 2015
At this year’s Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting, where 672 young scientists from 88 countries came together, five students from Jacobs University participated. One of them was Amanda Amoah from Ghana, who just completed her M.Sc. in Molecular Life Science, supervised by Prof. Dr. Sebastian Springer. She is particularly interested in the human immune system and in the evasion strategies pathogenic germs develop, to outsmart human defense mechanisms. She aims to contribute to a better understanding of these evasion strategies, which is the prerequisite for developing more effective medications and vaccinations against diseases and infections.

In an interview with the ARD television station, she talks about her research and the differences between Accra and Bremen. Take a look!

About the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings

Once every year, some dozens of Nobel Laureates convene at Lindau to meet the next generation of leading scientists: undergraduates, PhD students, and post-doc researchers from all over the world. The Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings foster the exchange among scientists of different generations, cultures, and disciplines. The Meetings focus alternately on physiology and medicine, on physics, and on chemistry – the three natural Nobel Prize disciplines.
