From the cells in our bodies to the social worlds we inhabit, our lives are inundated with complex ‘living’ systems. A new generation of scientists is exploring, mapping, harnessing, and shaping these living systems. Their work has profound implications from conservation to medicine; social networking to environmental cleanup. In this special PopTech Salon you’ll meet scientists and researchers including:

Christen Lien, the “viola artist” whose music has been described as “ethereal and otherwordly; a bridge to the divine.”

Beth Shapiro, the geneticist who is shedding new light on how species respond to environmental change

Justin Gallivan, the biochemist who is ‘programming’ bacteria to eat pollution

H. Sebastian Seung, the neuroscientist pioneering the quest for connectomes, precise and complete maps of neural connectivity in brains

Yasser Ansari, who is using mobile technology for wildlife exploration and is bringing citizen science to the masses through Project Noah
