Join us at Genspace (http://www.genspace.org/) for another lecture presented as part of the Know Science (http://knowscience.org/) series. Know Science is an international education and advocacy organization working to promote knowledge of science and scientific research to a non-specialized audience.

In our next talk, Dr. Niki Athanasiadou will discuss how you can sharpen your critical thinking skills. Is climate change really threatening us? Are vaccines more harmful than good? Dr. Niki Athanasiadou will set out to give you the critical thinking tools you need to answer these, and other disturbing questions, for yourself.

"The scientific method has been a driving force in shaping human history...Using knowledge gained from science, we will attempt to codify this set of cognitive skills so that everyone has the tools to address these important questions."

Niki Athanasiadou, PhD., is a research scientist at New York University. Athanasiadou graduated from the School of Biology in Aristotle’s University of Thessaloniki (Greece), has a Master of Research, received an award with distinction by the University of York (UK) and received her PhD in Molecular and Cellular Biology from the University of Edinburgh (UK).
