Inspired by the line “doubt everything” from Bertolt Brecht’s famous play about the life of Galileo, Dr. Bernstein will examine science – its origins, meaning, importance and wonder. Drawing on lessons from the revolution in molecular biology beginning in the mid-20th century, he will explore the importance of scientific questioning and the unique capacity for young minds to dig deep, challenge authority, explore new methodologies and ultimately, contribute to a healthier and more sustainable society.
Dr. Bernstein’s lecture will be followed by a panel discussion led by Junior Fellows of Massey College, Maripier Isabelle (discipline, Economics) and Trevor Plint (discipline, Chemical Engineering).
Dr. Alan Bernstein is the President & CEO of CIFAR. He is a Senior Fellow of Massey College and is an Officer of the Order of Canada.
