New York Times science editor Gina Kolata
Gina Kolata demystifies the science of personal health. Kolata's front page New York Times stories—on stem cell research, new cancer treatments, exercise, advances in cloning—have influenced public policy and upended conventional wisdom. In keynotes, she relates it all to the bigger picture: what it means for you, and for your future.
Gina Kolata has appeared on Charlie Rose, traded jokes with Stephen Colbert, and lectured at Yale to boot. She is a senior writer at The New York Times and the author of several acclaimed books, including Rethinking Thin, Clone: the Road to Dolly and the Path Ahead, Ultimate Fitness: The Quest for the Truth About Exercise and Health and Flu. She has received many awards, including the prestigious Susan G. Komen Foundation's media award for reporting on women's issues and breast cancer.
