* Young scientists breakfast with Nobel laureates at BioVision Forum * March 11, 2007 A rare opportunity for a select group of scientifically-inclined children attending the BioVision Life Sciences Forum in Lyon, France. On the opening day of the conference, they hosted a private breakfast with three Nobel Prize-winning scientists, to discuss the children's own projects to improve living conditions back in their home countries. "I think that the first thing that we can try to do is to inspire you and to tell you about our own life of how we happened to experience science and life in general and to tell you also for us it was not always simple," says Nobel laureate Richard Ernst. "And we had to overcome hurdles in our life." The children wasted no time asking questions about the challenges they face. "Is it possible to apply genetics to help improve the quality of water?" asked Irene Phungoh of Kenya. "It might be possible to develop novel micro-organisms or plants that are especially good at removing contaminants," said Nobel laureate John Sulston. The children also spoke with UNICEF Deputy Executive Director Kul Gautam. "How can BioVision and UNICEF ensure that we can keep in touch and develop lasting networks?" asked Maia Azores of the Philippines. "We would hope that when you go back that every three or four months you will send us a small report on what is happening with your project; what kind of progress is being made; and how we can be more helpful to you," Gautam said. The lively discussion left the children inspired and focused on their work. "Ladies and gentlemen, I think this is one of the unforgettable days of our lives because today we received answers from the most experienced scientists in the world," said Olam Qurbonali, a 14-year-old boy from Tajikistan. Perhaps one day, years from now, these children will be award-winning scientists themselves, sharing their knowledge with a new generation of children. This is Thomas Nybo reporting for UNICEF Television in Lyon, France. Unite for children.
