Council Members/Speakers

July 8, 2007 § Leave a comment

First, the speakers that I met, both of whom spoke eloquently on the subject of nanotechnology, and I can say are wonderful and intelligent men:

Dr. Andrew Maynard, a Briton who gives awesome presentations. I have never heard one so gripping as his. Embarassingly, I had to give my presentation the following week on his presentation. It is a hard act to follow.

Dr. Mauro Ferrari, a brilliant Italian scientist working for the University of Texas. He has four beautiful daughers, a son, a lovely wife, and a sparkling personality.  

Here are the Council members I met last week:

Dr. Leon Kass, author of The Hungry Soul as well as many, many, other excellent books.

Dr. Daniel Foster (L) and Dr. Robert George (R) – meeting Dr. George was one of my greatest thrills…I have read so many of his articles!

Dr. Paul McHugh, who I breakfasted with both mornings before the Council meetings, is a delightful, down-t0-earth gentleman.  Definitely the sweetest of the Council members.

Dr. William Hurlbut, a thrill to meet for sure.  I’ve already spoken about him in earlier posts. Surprisingly (for a scientist), he knows how to string two sentences together and make them sound nice. :)

Finally, this post wouldn’t be complete without a photo of the Council’s Chairman, Dr. Edmund Pellegrino.

Awwwww…I just love this guy. He’s so adorable – and terribly brilliant – I can’t even say. It is an honor working for him, conversing with him over lunch, and listening to his stories and endless wisdom.

Anyway, so that’s all I have to say for today. Perhaps I will get a chance to post again before I am ages older.
