Science and Society - Next Show

Dr. David Lemberg
Host - Science and Society

San Diego, CA | Posted on February 21, 2006

Dr. David Lemberg, Executive Producer of "Science and Society" announces the show schedule for Wednesday, 02/22/06, 1PM to 2PM Pacific.

Of particular interest to Nanotechnology Now readers are interviews with:

  • Dr. Lawrence M. Krauss, Ambrose Swasey Professor of Physics, Professor of Astronomy, and Director of the Center for Education and Research, Case Western Reserve University
  • Dr. Antonios Mikos, J.W. Cox Professor of Bioengineering and Director of the Center for Excellence in Tissue Engineering, Rice University; and Néha Datta, Senior majoring in bioengineering, Rice University
  • Dr. Greg Crawford, Associate Professor of Engineering and Physics, Brown University

Dr. Krauss is the author of “Hiding in the Mirror: The Mysterious Allure of Extra Dimensions, from Plato to String Theory and Beyond,” published in Fall 2005. He received the Julius Edgar Lilienfeld Prize of the American Physical Society in 2001. The citation reads “For outstanding contributions to the understanding of the early universe, and extraordinary achievement in communicating the essence of physical science to the general public.” He’ll discuss the nature of dark energy, the meaning and implications of scientific theory, and the possibility of parallel universes.

Dr. Mikos and Ms. Datta discuss a new way to culture adult stem cells from bone marrow, representing a significant advance in regenerative medicine. These results hold great promise for regenerating healthy bone and also may be applicable to other tissues. They may one day contribute to new treatment options for patients in a variety of scenarios.

Dr. Crawford discusses a new, noninvasive method of measuring hemoglobin in the blood, with applications to common conditions such as anemia.
