Science as an Adventure: A Conversation with Mauro Ferrari

A dialogue with Dr. Mauro FERRARI, President and CEO, Ernest Cockrell Jr. Distinguished Endowed Chair The Methodist Hospital Research Institute

Presented by Crossroads Cultural Center

The story of Dr. Mauro Ferrari shows that there is nothing mechanical or automatic about the birth of a new field in science and technology. The development of ideas, the sacrifice of hard work, the willingness to take risks, the creation of a community of researchers that share the same vision: all of these steps have a deep human dimension, and require a certain type of person and a certain culture that cannot be taken for granted. This is particularly true when the motivation for research is to help others, as is the case with Dr. Ferrari and biomedical nanotechnology, one of the most fascinating disciplines in contemporary science.

Crossroads is honored to host Dr. Ferrari for a wide-ranging discussion on his cutting-edge research, and also on the human and philosophical significance of scientific work.
