The speakers are: Dr. Margaret J. Geller *75, a Harvard University astrophysicist who maps the large-scale structures of the universe; Dr. Rebecca Goldstein *77, an analytic philosopher and novelist; Dr. Robert E. Kahn *64, who helped found the U.S. government's original Internet program and who continues to lead research and development on the National Information Infrastructure; Dr. Andrei N. Lupas *91, a widely-published molecular biologist who is investigating genomic approaches to creating new types of antibiotics; and Dr. Harrison C. White *60, a Columbia University sociologist and authority on topics ranging from organizational mobility to the interlinking of careers and creativity.
