#ISFF10 OCT 19, 7pm
Present at our Future Biology Series
Short talks from PhD students and Postdoctoral fellows about their current research and how it changes the way we may see biology in the future.
Be part of the "Future Biology" Talks!
On Wednesday, October 19 at The Rockefeller University, scientists will talk to us about their current research and tell us how we will "see" biology in the the future.
A healthy mixture of fact and fiction is permitted

These talks will be interspersed between the shorts of the 'Reimagining Biology' film program that examines the lenses through which we view biology in the past and present.

To all PhD students & Postdocs in the New York area...

Reimagining Biology
7pm | Films & Talks
reception from 6-7pm
Joining two mid-length films on significant historical developments in scientific thought, this program examines the lenses through which we view biology. First, we'll delve into the innovations of Anton van Leeuwenhoek that first opened the microscopic world to captivated eyes in the 1670s. Then, jumping three centuries forward, we'll come to Niles Eldridge, who in 1972, proposed, along with Stephen J. Gould, the punctuated equilibrium refinement of evolutionary theory, launching a debate that continues to this day. In between, shorter stops for Lynn Margulis and Ernst Haeckel meet cutting edge biological visualization bringing us right up to the present.Book design is the art of incorporating the content, style, format, design, and sequence of the various components of a book into a coherent whole. In the words of Jan Tschichold, "methods and rules upon which it is impossible to improve, have been developed over centuries. To produce perfect books, these rules have to be brought back to life and applied."
Front matter, or preliminaries, is the first section of a book, and is usually the smallest section in terms of the number of pages. Each page is counted, but no folio or page number is expressed, or printed, on either display pages or blank pages.
Every Tear

In the 17th century, Antoni Van Leeuwenhoek, a draper from Delft, begins to make glass lenses, in order to better study the quality of his textile. He melts, drips and grinds small beads of glass. His tiny lenses are so bright and have such magnifying power that the draper seems to have entered a new dimension.

Is he the first to see little moving 'animals' in a drop of water? How to describe something that nobody ever saw before?
