Misha Angrist is a geneticist and writer on the faculty at Duke University who in 2007 was the fourth subject in Harvard geneticist George Church’s Personal Genome Project. Yep, his entire genome was sequenced and is now a public document. One thing that resulted is his 2010 book Here is a Human Being: At The Dawn of Personal Genomics. On noon on Tuesday, Oct. 25 come hear Angrist reflect on his experiences and on some of the implications that the rise of genomics holds for all of us.

Please remember: The Durham Freeway (Route 147) no longer reaches all the way into Research Triangle Park. If you used to take it here, you’ll need to try another route. The good news: It’s still an easy drive.
