Third time’s a charm: Women’s Partnership for Science Luncheon successful again

Women’s Partnership for Science committee co-chairwomen Nancy Tilghman, Kristin Perkin Davison and Cristina Mariani-May at the third annual luncheon and lecture to support women scientists at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory.

What makes us attracted to one person over another? Could there be a day when a scientist effectively creates the genetic equivalent of Don Juan, Love Potion #9, or find a way to limit passion and romance? Dr. Helen Fisher, author of Why We Love: The Nature and Chemistry of Romantic Love, discussed these issues of human behavior at the Third Annual Women’s Partnership for Science Lecture and Luncheon on Sunday, June 27, 2004 at Peacock Point, Locust Valley, the waterfront home of Mr. and Mrs. Daniel P. Davison. Chaired by Kristina Perkin Davison, Cristina Mariani-May, Deborah Norville and Nancy Tilghman, the Women’s Partnership for Science is an initiative that supports women scientists at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory and develops outreach programs encouraging young women to pursue careers in science.
