SITN Spring Lectures - Sudden Death: A Tale of Cell Suicide

Hey kids - spring has sprung (well, sorta), and it's time again for the Science in the News spring lecture series :) Join us as our good friend and former director of SITN himself, Marshall Thomas, presents Sudden Death: A Tale of Cell Suicide.

For newcomers to the SITN scene, Science in the News is an organization of Harvard graduate students dedicated to bringing cutting edge research to the public in a fun and informative format.  Their lectures are clear and well presented, and allow for lots of questions and interaction from the audience.

The lecture is from 7:00 to 9:00 (or thereabouts).  We'll begin gathering in the hallway at the entrance to the lecture hall about a half hour beforehand, then go in and get seats about 10-15 minutes before it starts.  There are snacks and refreshments, and afterwards we'll head to one of many Harvard Square watering holes for food, drinks, and discussion.

If you miss the group beforehand, just look for us outside the auditorium afterwards - we won't be too hard to find.  Just look for a gaggle of nerds looking like they've just been edjumacated and ready for fun and merriment.

Hope to see you there :)

    Really well done lecture as always. Speaker was obviously enthusiastic about his topic and very good at communicating with the laymen in his audience. Love the new format of inky one speaker allowing for lots of questions from the audience.

    I've wanted to attend this lecture for months. But I'll be at a BIFF screening for a film I worked on. Hope to find this lecture later online. Enjoy it live, everyone!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
