+FIVE POINTSFive Points lecture series bring leading scientists from around the world for an in-depth discussion of their work with students, researchers and clinicians from the New York Genome Center, its member institutions, and others in the medical/scientific community. While Five Points lectures are free and open to the general public, these lectures are most beneficial to scientists, clinicians and researchers who wish to accelerate their research through the use of DNA sequencing technology and bioinformatics. Five Points lectures often frame five or so key points, in a nod to the series’ name — followed by 15 minutes of Q&A, and 30 minutes of networking over hors d’oeuvres and cocktails. These afternoon events are held in the Center’s state-of-the-art ground-floor auditorium starting at 4 pm.

+EVENING TALKSThe New York Genome Center’s Evening Talks events feature distinguished experts from around the world sharing genomic insights and research. They are intended to showcase and explain high science to the non-scientific community. Speakers present the latest research findings and explain its implication for helping improve clinical care for a wide array of serious diseases. The lecture is followed by a lively question-and-answer session and a post-event reception of hors d’oeuvres and cocktails. These popular free public events are held in the Center’s state-of-the-art ground-floor auditorium starting at 6:30 pm. The Evening Talks Series is sponsored by The New York Community Trust – Pyewacket Fund.
