Cambridge Innovation Center, 5th Floor, Havana Room (https://www.google.com/maps/place/1+Broadway,+Cambridge,+MA+02142/@42.3628373,-71.086115,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x89e370a5b761c351:0x3ab9187e6e6ffeb9!8m2!3d42.3628373!4d-71.0839263?hl=en)

On October 16th, please join us for an exciting evening with Professor George Church: Faculty member at both MIT and Harvard, a founding member of the Wyss Institute, and the director of the Personal Genome Project

From his PhD work on the first genome sequence methods to tools for hunting down dark matter, George Church’s innovations are numerous and foundational. More engineer than scientist, his lab brings together the brightest minds from physics, neuroscience, genetics, and engineering. Join us for a glimpse into his vision of a future shaped by the power of genetics to solve today’s challenges.

Refreshments provided by Helbling (6pm-8pm).

Agenda: 6:00-6:30 Refreshments (Swiss Bakers) and Networking
6:30-7:30 George Church, Intro and Q&A
7:30-8:00 Networking Then join us for the after party at Firebrand Saints!

IMPORTANT: Cambridge Innovation Center (CIC) is a secured facility, so you will need to check in at the security desk on the first floor. Please bring a photo ID. The CIC can be busy after work with events like these, so we suggest arriving early in case there is a line at the security desk. Your security check-in experience will be faster if your meetup.com account name matches the full name on your ID.

Kendall Square T Stop (Red Line) is across the street from the Cambridge Innovation Center. There are a number of pay parking lots in the area. There is free parking in the MIT Hayward Lot (http://web.mit.edu/mitdlbc/www/parking.htm) after 5pm
