The Lawrence Hall of Science
The public science center of the University of California, Berkeley.
10:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m.
On a visit to The Lawrence, students collaborate to investigate new ideas as they become scientists and engineers for a day.
We partner with school districts to support science learning. We offer district-wide elementary, middle, and high school programs, either virtually or in-person.
We collaborate with a range of partners to innovate in science education. Together, we go further.
How are new medicines discovered and developed? How can universities help create products that truly benefit patients? How do the government and private companies decide which projects to invest in? In this talk, Dr. Schaletzky, the Executive Director of Berkeley’s Center for Emerging and Neglected Diseases, will highlight some innovative campaigns resulting in first-in-class therapies for patients with heart failure, cancer, and infectious diseases. Registration is required.
A scientist who spans many fields of research, Dr. Schaletzky will provide an overview of translational science, the drug discovery and development process, and how the academic and private sectors can work together more productively. She will also touch on access to medicines, affordability, the power of monopolies, and how to continue to create solutions even without an economic incentive.
