Science and Society | The Science Breakthroughs of 2022



Each year Science magazine selects a scientific advance as the Breakthrough of the Year, along with nine other advances the magazine’s editors and writers considered especially important. Join us for a conversation with Science’s News Editor, Tim Appenzeller, who will discuss the magazine’s picks for 2022. It will be a tour through some of the hottest areas of research.

His previous positions included Chief Magazine Editor at Nature, Executive Editor at National Geographic, and editorial posts at U.S. News and World Report and Scientific American.

The library's “Science and Society - Making Sense of the World Around Us” lecture series is co-organized and moderated by Fred Dylla, Executive Director Emeritus of the American Institute of Physics and author of Scientific Journeys, Linda Dylla, former public information officer at the Jefferson Laboratory and the U.S. Department of Energy, and Colin Norman, the former News Editor at Science.
