We are holding two sessions on 3rd May at the Broad Institute in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Cambridge Science Festival Sessions

How do journalists approach stories?  What happens when research announcements go wrong or discussions become polarized?

What does peer review do for science? Does it illuminate good ideas or shut them down?
