Elizabeth Blackburn and the Story of Telomeres: Deciphering the Ends of DNA
Tuesday, December 11th at 7:00 PM

Author Catherine Brady and molecular biologist Elizabeth Blackburn will be on hand to discuss Blackburn's groundbreaking work on telomeric DNA, which launched the field of telomere research. Brady's book gives readers an in-depth look at Blackburn's struggle to break down barriers in a male-dominated profession and her dismissal from the President's Council on Bioethics after she objected that council reports misrepresented scientific evidence on stem-cell research and biomedical technology.
