Do you want to know “what’s next.?” Join the HS/HSL as we close our 200th Anniversary celebration and launch a new speaker series, “What’s Next…?”  This new series will focus on innovative thought leaders’ discussing exciting developments shaping the future of health, health science, and the human condition.

On April 15, our inaugural speaker is Dr. Ellen Jorgensen. Dr. Jorgensen is the co-founder and Executive Director of Genspace, a nonprofit community laboratory dedicated to promoting citizen science and access to biotechnology, and is currently adjunct faculty at New York Medical College, Scientist-In-Residence at the School of Visual Arts, and a Visiting Professor at The Cooper Union. She is a noted expert on bio-hacking and citizen science. Her TED Talk, “Biohacking, You Can Do It Too,” from 2012 was invigorating, exciting, and thought provoking and has received almost 1 million views. Her presentation on the 15th will be “Community Labs as Centers of Innovation and Learning.”

Join us at us at 11:30 a.m. in the Elm Ballroom at the Southern Management Corporation Campus (SMC) Center for a light luncheon and her talk. While there is no charge for the luncheon, registration is required so that we can plan accordingly. Reserve your space by emailing events@hshsl.umaryland.edu.
