AAAS Happenings: Ladyparts and Roller Derby Shenanigans


Email   PrintPrint



I’m attending the AAAS Meetings in Chicago this year in both my capacities as a scientist: as someone who does reproductive physiology research and as a science communicator. And it all happens tomorrow!

Check out the press briefing today for the Building Babies session. Katie Hinde is the symposium organizer, and fellow session speakers are Julienne Rutherford, Lee Gettler, Erin Kinnally and Robin Nelson.

Wake up early to come see us in the Regency C room at the Hyatt Regency Chicago, the session starts at 8:30am!

Then tomorrow night, I will reprise my role as vaginal pH spokeswoman at the Ig Nobels event, performing a 24/7 talk. Better yet, Scicurious will be giving one too!

Then, because one always needs more smart women at any platform to celebrate science, I will be coordinating a roller derby skin microbiome transfer demo with Twin City Derby Girls leaguemate Polly Nator… and some special guests from the Chicago Outfit league as well!

So make sure you come to the Annals of Improbable Research event at 8pm in the Rouge Room (as in Moulin Rouge!) at the Fairmont Chicago.
