Is Chemistry a Good, Nursing Mother? Or Does It Poison Us?
The French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS), in partnership with the Office for Science & Technology at the Embassy of France, hosted a conference on Monday, December 12th 2011 at the Embassy of France in Washington D.C.
"Is Chemistry a Good, Nursing Mother? Or Does It Poison Us?" was presented by Prof. Pierre Laszlo, Professor Emeritus of organic chemistry at the University of Liege and the Ecole Polytechnique and author of more than 200 primary publications in the field of organic chemistry.
Prof. Laszlo’s lecture aimed at arbitrating between risks and benefits of a science, which remains too underrated in public perception.
