The Franklin Institute Speaker Series

Can humans really settle in space? Should childhood vaccines be mandated? To end hunger, should we depend on GMOs or organic farming—or both?

The Franklin Institute is proud to host an ongoing speaker series designed to spotlight the most talked about and highly-debated scientific issues facing our world today. The series presents conversations about the science and human impacts of emerging technologies, with topics and expert speakers curated by The Franklin Institute’s team of scientists, including Chief Astronomer Derrick Pitts, and Chief Bioscientist Dr. Jayatri Das. Our scientists facilitate conversations between speakers and the audience to spark a thoughtful, solution-driven public discussion informed by current research and social context.
