Special Programs : Science Needs Champions: Creating collective action to advance biotech innovations for humanity

jun 6, 2018: 1:45 p.m. - 2:45 p.m.
Room 207, Level 2

In today’s hyper-connected world, science has the potential to become ignored or misunderstood by the public. How do we bring science down from the ivory tower and bridge the gap between science and humanity? Champions of science are needed to translate complex ideas and make it simple, and human, so we can all engage in a dialog about science and its impact on our daily lives. We need global dialog so that discoveries from one corner of the world will improve lives and inspire breakthroughs in another. How do we help the people on the other side of the pill understand the importance of science?

Join a distinguished group of panelists who will address these important questions. The 2018 winner of the Dr. Paul Janssen Award will join the discussion.
