Discovery Series: Dr. Lea Starita – Using CRISPR to Advance Precision Medicine
February 14, 2020
Reading the news, it can be easy to imagine that all of the cool research is coming out of MIT or Stanford. But folks at the Fred Hutch, WSU, UW, PNNL, and other local research institutions are turning out game-changing, and in some cases, life-altering, research. The Discovery Series offers the broader community an opportunity to learn about new discoveries and cutting-edge technologies directly from our state’s leading scientists and innovators.
Join us for lunch on the second Friday of almost every month (Sept-June, except December) at a cool location around town to get educated, inspired, connected. Designed to bring together the state’s preeminent researchers, innovative leaders, and elected officials who want to stay on top of important advancements being made in our state, each Discovery Series program will include lunch, networking time, a Q&A session, and an opportunity to meet the speaker.
Since 1997, more than 150 presenters have informed and amazed us with everything from neurobotics, video of gigantic tubeworms living next to hot vents in the Atlantic Ocean, the fight against malaria, genetically engineered food truths and myths, the promise of predictive medicine, and images from the world’s most powerful telescope.
