Broad Discovery Series: Taking an engineer's approach to understanding biology

Taking an engineer's approach to understanding biology

The next breakthrough in science often comes from looking at a problem from a new angle and with new facts. In the inaugural talk of the Broad Discovery Series, Paul Blainey and Alex Shalek will share how taking an engineering approach can allow scientists to make new types of biological measurements that help answer important questions about cells and tissues, and can yield new, otherwise unseeable perspectives about how living systems work.

This Broad Discovery Series talk will be held both in person and virtually. Those attending in person are invited to a reception in the Broad Discovery Center following the talk to celebrate the launch of both the Center and the new series.
