Science, Living Systems, and the Edge of Change: A PopTech Salon

On June 22, 2010 from 6:00pm – 9:00pm (EST) in the Alfred Noble Hall at the House of Sweden in Washington, DC, PopTech will bring together three speakers and a musical guest for a special salon event featuring a new generation of scientists who are exploring, mapping, harnessing, and shaping complex living systems. Their work has profound implications from conservation to medicine; social networking to environmental cleanup.

Edge of Change

In this special PopTech Salon you’ll meet scientists and researchers including:

Speakers:
Beth Shapiro, the geneticist who is shedding new light on how species respond to environmental change
Justin Gallivan, the biochemist who is ‘programming’ bacteria to eat pollution
H. Sebastian Seung, the neuroscientist who is helping computers see the connections between the brain’s neurons

Special Guest:
Christen Lien, the “viola artist” whose music has been described as “ethereal and otherwordly; a bridge to the divine.”

PopTech would like to thank the National Science Foundation and the Intel Corporation for their generous support of this program.
