Advancing Science And Policy Roundtable
Are you aware of the new BESTie run club called Advancing Science and Policy (ASAP)? If not, see below.
The last ASAP roundtable of the semester will be next Thursday, December 10th at 4:30pm in Weill 321. Bruce Lewenstein, Professor of Science Communication, will lead the discussion on how scientists can present their work and also how to defend your scientific research against critics. We hope you can join us!
Jen McGlaughon, ASAP Secretary
Chelsea L. Gregg, M.S., PhD Candidate, Cardiovascular Developmental Bioengineering Laboratory, Department of Biomedical Engineering, Cornell University
Economic growth and societal well-being are intimately linked to scientific discoveries and technological innovation. Scientists need to raise their voice as we face increasingly difficult questions about energy policy, healthcare, science funding, patent law reform, digital surveillance, education, risk management, and so on. The Cornell Advancing Science And Policy (ASAP) group aims to engage STEM students in the policy making process and educate the public about the role of scientific input in advancing society.
