TOP SCIENTISTS DISCUSS BOUNDARY-BREAKING RESEARCH IN CUNY ASRC SEMINAR SERIES, ‘CONVERGE TO TRANSFORM’
In a reimagined seminar series hosted by the Advanced Science Research Center at the Graduate Center, CUNY (CUNY ASRC), titled “Converge to Transform,” six leading scientists will explain their interdisciplinary STEM research and how it impacts humanity and the planet.
The six-part series begins on Tuesday, September 28, and is open for all CUNY students, faculty, and staff to enjoy.
Researchers today must address a growing demand for technological advances and an expanding list of threats to human and environmental welfare. Solving these challenges requires scientists to work across disciplines in innovative and collaborative ways. “Converge to Transform” features researchers whose consequential work bridges many of the most dynamic areas of science, such as computational biology, nanotechnology, epigenetics, and environmental impacts on human health.
“Converge to Transform” kicks off on Tuesday, September 28, at 11 a.m. with a talk by Mikhail Shapiro, professor of chemical engineering at Caltech, who will present “Talking to cells: technologies to image and control cellular function deep inside the body.”
