The Art of Science
Sunday, January 15, 2017
11:00 am | Auditorium, ground floor
A conversation with Dr. Luca Matone, Astrophysicist, Member of the LIGO Scientific Collaboration that detected gravitational waves, Dr. Polly Matzinger, Immunologist, NIH who described the “Danger Model” and Dr. Maria Teresa Landi* (moderator), Principal Investigator, NIH
Is it possible to perceive the "sound" of the universe? And how does our body fight diseases? Can science be defined as an art? What is success in research? What guides a researcher? These are among the questions posed to the experience and passion of two major leaders in the field.
*Dr. Landi will speak at New York Encounter in her personal capacity.
