Dr. David Lemberg
Host - Science and Society
San Diego, CA | Posted on January 03, 2006
Dr. David Lemberg, Executive Producer of "Science and Society" announces the show schedule for Wednesday, 01/04/06, 1PM to 2PM Pacific.
Of particular interest to Nanotechnology Now readers are interviews with:
Dr. Hall discusses activities of the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine, established by Proposition 71 to promote stem cell research in California. Over the next 10 years, the institute will disburse almost $3 billion in state bond funds to investigators at California universities and research institutions for stem cell research. The research funded by the CIRM will focus on patient- and disease-specific stem cell research and other vital research opportunities for the development of life-saving regenerative medical treatments and therapies.
The New York Times Book Review calls Carl Zimmer “as fine a science essayist as we have.” Mr. Zimmer is the author of four books about science. His latest book, Smithsonian Guide to Human Evolution, was published in November 2005 by Smithsonian Books. He’ll discuss how the study of evolution is shedding light on cancer and other diseases, and what are scientists learning about the evolution of the human brain by studying DNA, and the current debate about recent hominids.
Dr. Salzberg was part of the team that published the human genome in 2001, and has participated in the sequencing of genomes from a long list of human pathogens, including the microbes responsible for anthrax, Lyme disease, tuberculosis, and malaria. He’ll discuss the flu pandemics of 1918, 1957, and 1968, and how likely it is that the current "bird flu" will turn into a 1918-like pandemic. He’ll also discuss new challenges for genome sequencing and his bioinformatics research focusing on "genome assembly."
