Hey, What's the Big Idea? Symposium

This symposium brings together highly successful scientists from inside and outside the University to present the genesis of their greatest ideas. The goal is to understand how breakthroughs in science were inspired; how specific problems were picked for study, how experiments were designed to address the problem, and how critical insights were gained that led to the Ah-Ha! moment when it all made sense.
