Opening Keynote Presentation: "Too Creative for Science"
Ahna Skop, Ph.D.
Assistant Professor, University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Department of Genetics

The nature of the questions that society is increasingly asking of the science community crosses boundaries that have been rarely crossed. It requires visualizing information in creative, new ways and these visualizations push scientists ever closer to the domain of the artist. This intersection of art and science can be closer than you think. What does thinking like an artist offer the scientist?  What can the blending of art and science do to creatively approach research questions, encourage a more diverse population of students to pursue science, and improve the public’s understanding of science? By allowing a closer relationship between science and art, we see new possibilities while at the same time humanizing the practice of science.
