Description

Some scientific puzzles require a hyper-focussed (perhaps obsessive) attention to specific questions; others need a zoomed-out, interdisciplinary viewpoint. Some combination of both is often the route to breakthroughs. Panelists will share how they strive to see both the forest and the trees when tackling big puzzles.
