Civic Scientist Lecture Series — Panel Session on Advancing Civic Science in America

Join us for an interactive panel session on the current state of science in America with three eminent civic scientists — Neal Lane, Ph.D.; John Mendelsohn, M.D.; and David Eagleman, Ph.D. The panelists will discuss topics such as scientific research, STEM education and science funding, drawing on their expertise and extensive involvement in engaging the public and decision-makers on these matters. Following the panel, audience members will be encouraged to share their thoughts with the panelists, who will provide commentary.

This event, also a part of the Shell Distinguished Lecture Series, is co-hosted by the Baker Institute Science and Technology Policy Program, the Baker Institute Student Forum and Rice Empower. A light reception will follow.
