Dr. Siddhartha Mukherjee, author of The Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer and The Gene: An Intimate History, straddles the empirical and deeply personal, providing readers with paradigm-shifting interpretations of medical research for the modern age. In his Vanderbilt appearance, he will focus on his most recent book, the state of scientific progress in higher education, and the dense world of genetics that, in his words, “governs our form, function and fate and determines the future of our children.”
His keynote address at Langford Auditorium will be followed by a question-and-answer session moderated by Zeppos.
