olar and international expert in atomic physics, laser spectroscopy, biophysics and polymer physics, Chu is director of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, the oldest and most varied of the multi-program research laboratories of the U.S. Department of Energy. While at Stanford University, his groundbreaking work in cooling and trapping atoms by using laser light led to the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1997, an honor he shared with two colleagues. Their discoveries, focusing on the so-called "optical tweezers" laser trap, were instrumental in the study of fundamental phenomena and in measuring important physical quantities with unprecedented precision. He also helped start Bio-X, a multi-disciplinary initiative that brings together the physical and biological sciences with engineering and medicine.

International Science Leader Mohamed H.A. Hassan, International Cooperation on Science and Technology for Sustainable Well-Being, Sunday, 6:30 p.m. As executive director of the Academy of Sciences for the Developing World (TWAS), Trieste, Italy, Hassan has been a key player in introducing research on climate issues, especially how climate affects the lives of the most underserved populations. He also is president of the African Academy of Sciences (AAS) and secretary general of the Third World Network of Scientific Organizations. One of Africa's most distinguished scientists, Hassan was born in the Sudan and holds a Ph.D. degree in plasma physics from the University of Oxford, United Kingdom (1974). A former professor and dean of the School of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Khartoum, he received the order of scientific merit of Brazil and the order of merit of Italy.
