In 2015, as part of the 200th Anniversary Celebration of the HS/HSL, we began a new speaker series that looks to the future. The purpose of "What's Next...?" is to invite speakers to UMB to discuss exciting new developments shaping the future of health, health science, and the human condition.
April 15, 2015. The inaugural "What's Next...?" lecturer was Dr. Ellen Jorgensen, co-founder and Executive Director of Genspace, a non-profit community lab. Her lecture entitled "Biohacking, You Can Do it Too" discussed the biohacker movement, the development of Genspace, and the importance of community labs in education and research.
