Kasper Lage invited to give the Five Points Lecture at the New York Genome Center

posted in: Uncategorized | 0
‘Named for an early Manhattan crossroads – remembered as a rowdy but cosmopolitan gathering place, and as a nexus for progress in public health – the Five Points Lectures bring outstanding scientists from near and far, to discuss their work in technical detail with researchers and clinicians from institutions served by NYGC, in order to strengthen our grasp of key biological questions and methods. Speakers present fresh and intriguing findings, along with thoughtful views on their respective fields, in full scientific depth. Talks last roughly 45 minutes — often framing five or so key points, in a nod to the series’ name — followed by 15 minutes of open Q&A, and 30 minutes of informal chat over refreshments. Speakers may then meet with one or several attending colleagues, for further discussion’ (from the NYGC webpage).
