Join us after the 7:30pm show on Wednesday, March 28, 2019 for a lively conversation with a scholar about their work and thoughts on the production.

Dr. Lee Makowski worked with Don Caspar for 8 years, first as a Ph.D. student and then as a post-doctoral fellow.  Much of his research work since that time has involved developing m
ethods for analysis of fiber diffraction patterns similar in form to that of Photo 51.  In 2010 he moved to Northeastern University where he is now Inaugural Chair of Bioengineering and Professor of Chemistry and Chemical Biology.

Dr. Daniel A. Kirschner is a professor in biology at Boston College. His current research interests are focused on the structure and dynamic membrane interactions in abnormal nerve myelin, in which alterations have resulted from experimental, pathological, or genetic conditions. To link structure and composition at the molecular, macromolecular and tissue levels in the nervous system, our studies in these areas have utilized x-ray diffraction, microscopy at the light and ultrastructural levels, a variety of protein and lipid biochemical techniques, and molecular modeling
