Ten times a year, Carnegie Science bring extraordinary opportunities to connect with some of the most-gifted investigators in science and hear the stories behind their discoveries. These hour-long lectures (followed by a brief Q&A period) go beyond media accounts for a firsthand look at the “aha” moments, the setbacks, and the triumphs that drive brilliant minds and fundamentally change our understanding of the world around us.
