Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) is joining seven other prominent science institutions from five continents in the “Life Science Across the Globe” (PDF) seminar series. Each institution will give both a science talk and a science culture talk. It is the goal of the series to increase knowledge and advance solutions to global problems through open communication of science across borders. The talks will be hosted on Wednesdays, starting July 1, at 9 a.m. ET live-streamed through Zoom, with the link accessible through the “Life Science Across the Globe” website. There will be a question and answer period.
The first talk on July 1, 2020 is hosted by Janelia Research Campus and features Senior Group Leader and former Executive Director Gerry Rubin discussing “The connections of the fly brain: An example of big science” and Janelia Connectome Association Manager Ruchi Parekh talking about “The CAT culture.”
On July 8, 2020, CSHL presents two discussions. Associate Professor Mikala Egeblad will host a science talk entitled “NETs in flames: Neutrophil Extracellular Traps in disease.” For the science culture talk, Executive Director of the DNA Learning Center David Micklos will present “CSHL’s DNA Learning Center: A successful formula for education outreach.”
All talks will be archived after the livestream and will be available for viewing for free on the “Life Science Across the Globe” website.
