FORA.tv Speaker - Fintan Steele
Now based at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard as director of scientific education and communications, Fintan Steele valiantly tries to reap the whirlwind of post-genomic data for the bits that matter, and stitch those fragments together into something accessible and meaningful to people beyond the scientific community. He is alternately amused and infuriated by breathless media statements of "scientific breakthroughs" and by the shameless exploitation of bad or incomplete science in the marketplace, even by scientists themselves.
Legally married in Massachusetts and Connecticut (and recognized as such in New York), Fintan and his long-suffering husband Scott pour money into their old Medford, Massachusetts home and are entertained daily by their rescued Cornish Rex cats.
