Confirmed Speakers


For these unique meetings, we invite speakers who made many of the seminal discoveries that began the field, as well as those who are working on the topic now.  We also invite historians of science who have examined the topic, setting it in its scientific and societal context.  Like the previous meetings in the series, this meeting will provide an excellent opportunity to look in-depth at a topic and share the stories that are often missing from academic accounts.

We anticipate the meeting will interest a broad range of individuals, including scientists, clinicians, historians, activists, and science journalists

While abstracts are NOT being accepted for this meeting, we invite participants who would like to present posters at the meeting to alert us via email to Val Pakaluk.  Plan on a maximum size of 4ft x 4ft (1.22m x 1.22m) for your poster.

We have applied for funds from industry and other sponsors to partially offset attendance costs for those in real financial need.  Apply in writing to Val Pakaluk stating your need for financial support.

We look forward to seeing you at Cold Spring Harbor in October.
