In case you missed them, here are presentations that have been the most popular with our audience according to attendance and overall viewing satisfaction. So sit back and with your refreshments and popcorn and get ready for some some science insight and chemistry knowledge. Watch them today, join the conversation, or connect with the experts on LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, or ACS Network.
Join Dr. Charlie Bamforth as he takes you on a journey through the psychophysics, physics and chemistry of beer foam in pursuit of the perfectly presented pint. You will learn more than you ever thought possible about the little bubbles in beer. Chemistry has never been more refreshing!
Join Maryn McKenna, author of “Superbug,” as she explores the history and rise of multi-drug resistant MRSA.The incidences of drug resistant strains are becoming more and more common while many manufacturers have stepped back on the antibiotic development. These two factors have created a situation that has almost sent patients and physicians back to the pre-antibiotic era.
Join Dr. Stuart Firestein, author of “Ignorance: How it Drives Science” and Chair of Columbia University’s Department of Biological Sciences, in a thought provoking presentation of how to take a new approach to scientific research. The most important outcome of scientific investigation is ignorance – newer, better ignorance. As many papers and books are produced each year in scientific journals, even more ignorance is created. The nature of a successful experiment is to learn perhaps one new thing and produce at least two new questions.
