Luis Campos: "Neanderthals in Space: George Church's Modest Steps Toward Possible Futures"

March 6 @ 12:10 pm - 2:00 pm

Time: 12:10 PM – 2:00 PM
Location: STS Conference Room, SSH Bldg # 1246
Please RSVP at http://bit.ly/2CMcGll
This talk will address George Church’s emergence as a prominent biologist, from his technological discoveries in synthetic biology to some of the more remarkable “dreams” he has had for the field. Yet his scientific dreams have also provoked debate and controversy. The talk will consider Church’s status as a scientific visionary in light of the critical responses his work has engendered.

He is the author of Radium and the Secret of Life (2015, University of Chicago Press), as well as numerous other publications on the history of biology. He is Secretary of the History of Science Society and Senior Fellow at the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Center for Health Policy.
