About the Seminars:
The Jacques Loeb Centre seminars provide an interdisciplinary forum, in which historians and philosophers of science, as well as scientists, present and discuss new research related to science with a special focus on the life sciences. Case studies and surveys examine the impact of political, socio-economic and personal factors on the conduct of science, the ethics of research, and the causes of progress and setbacks. Faculty and students from all disciplines are invited!
Joint Seminars will take place at the hosting departments.
All others will take place at the de Picciotto conference room, building 39 (Biology), room 106.
