With the March for Science and its satellite marches just a couple weeks away, a much-awaited part of programming is finally being revealed: the speakers. And one of the most familiar names to be announced so far is noted Harvard biologist George Church, who plans to speak at the Boston march on April 22.

Church has a hand in lots of cutting-edge genetics research, from organizing efforts to synthesize a human genome to leading a team to de-extinct the woolly mammoth.

  • Just out of curiosity, is the March for Science paying an honorarium or travel expenses for George Church or any other speakers? I haven’t seen any information on this. With so many prominent and well-funded scientists (not to mention any names) now forcing their own students to pay their way to scientific meetings, I would think this would be an interesting question to ask.
