A Purdue University Calumet professor of physics who served on an international team of physicist researchers may learn tomorrow morning if they won the Noble Prize for their role in the discovery of the Higgs boson sub-atomic particle, otherwise known as the “God Particle”, a vital building block in shaping understanding about the composition and interaction of all matter in the universe. Wes Lukoshus, Purdue University Vice Chancellor of Advancement/University Relations, says Dr. Neeti Parashar, who has worked at the University since 2005, began research on the Higgs boson sub-atomic particle back in 1997, and several of her Purdue Calumet students have participated in the project.
Regardless of who wins the Nobel Prize for Physics, Purdue Calumet will hold a news conference at 1pm tomorrow to recognize the extraordinary collaborative contributions of Dr. Parashar regrading the Higgs boson discovery.
