One is an M.D. and one a Ph.D., and together, this married couple has made it their mission to help us help ourselves, to “find the impossible in our own unique ways.”

Chris Gilbert, physician and author and president/COO of Discovery Democracy LLC, and her husband Eric Haseltine, also an author, neuroscientist, and chairman of the board of the U.S. Technology Leadership Council, will team for the fifth presentation of Louisiana Tech’s 2019-20 New Frontiers in Biomedical Research Seminar Series at 3:30 p.m. March 23.

All are welcome to attend the seminar in Room 134 of University Hall; a reception will follow.

The featured couple on their website, Gilbert and Haseltine will present “Prediction Science: An Emerging New Field.”

Gilbert is the author of “The Listening Cure” and often shares her expertise in integrative and holistic medicine, including homeopathy, acupuncture, bio-identical hormones, supplements and Gestalt therapy.

Co-author of “The Listening Cure,” Haseltine was formerly director of research at the National Security Agency, associate Director of National Intelligence in charge of Science and Technology for the U.S. Intelligence community, and executive vice president of Disney Imagineering. He has given several popular TED talks on the future of science and is an inventor with over 70 patents and pending patents.

Haseltine’s books include “The Spy in Moscow Station,” which features Tech graduate Charles Gandy (COES, 1955), the center of a recently de-classified true story about a life-and-death counter-intelligence challenge and the race to find a leak in the United States Embassy in Moscow before more American assets are identified and killed.

Established in 2013, the New Frontiers in Biomedical Research Seminar Series is a lecture series that brings world-renowned researchers from a variety of biomedical fields to the Tech campus. The series offers students and faculty the opportunity to learn and interact with leaders in their fields of study. Representing the interdisciplinary nature of biomedical research, the lectures are always free and open to the public.
