One example is a DNA “box” that contains chemotherapy drugs but does not open until it encounters a cancer cell, thus reducing the side effects to the rest of the body.
Keeping with the medical side of things, we then heard from Dean Sherzai, director of the Brain Health and Alzheimer’s Prevention Program at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and Afghanistan’s former Deputy Minister of Health.
Her focus within the Bio/Nano Research Group is on cloud-based tools for 3D molecular visualization and the design of nanoscale biological structures. Essentially, Merry is a world-class designer who uses DNA as her construction material.
On a nanoscale, she designs and builds structures that can operate inside the human body.
Then on to this writer’s personal favorite: Amy Parish is a biological anthropologist, primatologist, and Darwinian feminist who teaches at USC. Amy’s thesis is that “bonobos are from Venus, chimps are from Mars.” Chimpanzees, typically thought of us the most human-like of the great apes, are violent, sexually manipulative, infant-killing monkeys, she asserts.

Sometimes I was bombarded with so many questions that my mind went blank. And, in the end, I talked to seven men and survived. The next day I went onto the website to choose my matches. Only one I was kind of actually interested in, but the other three I at least felt were nice and that we could have a good conversation. And then I went back to the homepage where it showed me my matches. And then I checked again every day until the window of opportunity to pick closed.

When one of them asked what my favorite food was you’d think I’d never had seen a morsel of anything edible before in my life.
After a welcoming wine and cheese reception, we (the Hollywood types, that is) were each given a mysterious key, which in turn linked us to a handler that ushered small groups into seven rooms. She also teaches science to kids and brings art and creativity to STEM.
The evening consisted of seven world-class scientists, each pitching the essence of their cutting-edge research, in a seven-minute time frame. Noelle is a pioneer in the field of 3D bioprinting, which involves constructing an armature upon which living stem cells can grow on a nanoscale level into a fully functional organ.
