Proctor Academy Hosts Nobel Prize Winners

By Scott Allenby, Proctor Academy

Each summer, Proctor Academy’s campus serves as a host site for Gordon Research Conferences (GRC), an international forum for the presentation and discussion of frontier research in the biological, chemical, and physical sciences and their related technologies. Gordon Research Conferences are created by scientists, for scientists, and with host sites around the country, Proctor’s campus remains a favorite of visiting scientists because of Andover’s beautiful location, the quality of facilities, and the remarkable food prepared by Proctor’s Dining Services team throughout the summer.

With over a 1,000 scientists staying on Proctor’s campus over the 11 weeks of conferences, some incredibly talented individuals present their research in Andover. This summer, two Nobel Prize recipients presented work in their respective fields as Richard Taylor (University of Notre Dame) presented on Natural Products and Bioactive Compounds and Randy Schekman (University of California, Berkeley) presented on Proteoglycans.

Proctor Academy thanks everyone in the Andover community for welcoming GRC conferees with open arms.
