Purdue Cal Professor In Nobel Consideration
October 7, 2013 — Purdue University Calumet is planning a news conference tomorrow about the involvement of a Purdue-Cal professor in research of the Higgs boson sub-atomic particle.
The news conference could also involve a Nobel Prize.
As the 2013 Nobel Prize in Physics will be announced early tomorrow morning with its recipients yet unknown, the University says there is speculation that leaders of an international team of physics researchers are strong contenders for their role in the discovery of the Higgs boson sub-atomic particle.
Purdue Cal physics professor Dr. Neeti Parashar has served on that team that researched “the God particle,” whose discovery shapes and enhances understanding of the natural universe.
Purdue Calumet will hold a news conference tomorrow, “to recognize the extraordinary collaborative contributions of Dr. Parashar regarding the Higgs boson discovery. . . Dr. Parashar will discuss the Higgs boson, its impact on scientific understanding of the universe and her research relating to the discovery.”
The University says the 1 p.m. news conference at the university’s Student Union and Library is open to the campus.
