Our Science Fiction TV Dinner series is a launch pad for new conversations about science, technology, art and society. Enjoy dinner from local food trucks, then watch a screening of the House, M.D. episode “Cane and Able,” in which misanthropic genius diagnostician Gregory House and his team tackle the case of a young boy who believes he has been abducted and tortured by aliens. The story turns on a truth stranger than fiction: human chimeras who carry the DNA of more than one person in their bodies.
Following the screening, Center for Science and the Imagination Editor and Program Manager Joey Eschrich will moderate a conversation featuring Dr. Cathy Seiler, scientific liaison at ASU’s Biodesign Institute, and Dr. Kenneth S. Ramos, associate vice president of precision health services and professor of medicine at the Arizona Health Sciences Center of the University of Arizona. The event is free – RSVP now!
