The Civic Liberal Arts Project is opening a series of Scientist Talks to students through a collaboration with the LIGO (Art Science project) and Theater professor, Zisan Ugurlu.
The first speaker Scott Lowe, Chair of Cancer Biology at Memorial Sloan Kettering will be presenting work that he did with choreographer, NoraPetroliunas, to create an artscience project focused on his research in cancer.
Lowe will be speaking to Zisan’s class on Wednesday Sept 27 from 11:55am- 1:30pm in Room 001 Basement in 66 West 12th Street and you are invited to join them.
See these resources produced by Ligo to connect topics of genetic diversity and phenotypic diversity with genetic engineering and to understand how they are using embryonic stem cells to study cancer in mice. Nora then applies this work to her work through the Pharmacy Project seeking analogies on how our environments and genetics can influence how we feel.
