Science Writer Carl Zimmer

carl_zimmer.jpg

Carl Zimmer has written thirteen books on a plethora of science topics, writes a column for the NY Times, an award-winning blog for National Geographic, and also covers science elsewhere like in Slate and The Atlantic. Some say he is the top science writer on genomic science and everything that relates to it. He’s here in Charlotte lecturing tonight about advances in genomic technology that have cut costs by billions, making research more affordable and increasing the likelihood of cutting-edge advances in future medical treatments. We meet him and learn a little about science.
