Event Details

Professor Nita Farahany is holding an info session for postdocs, grad students, and undergrads (sophomores, juniors and seniors), who are interested in learning more about opportunities for joining the SLAPLAB.

SLAPLAB (Science, Law & Policy Lab) is a vertically-integrated, interdisciplinary laboratory directed by Nita Farahany (Professor of Law & Philosophy, Director of Duke Initiative for Science & Society). SLAPLAB is designed to bring science to bear on questions of law and policy. Faculty, postdocs, graduate students, and undergrads work together on shared research projects and publications.

SLAPLAB is built around the broad theme of how science impacts and is impacted by law and policy. Researchers study the roles of science in the law and policymaking, with a particular emphasis on the biosciences (genetics and neuroscience).
Empirical research and laboratory research using consumer technology and devices (e.g. Google Glass, Consumer EEG devices, tDCS) is undertaken using a collaborative model of research and publications. Lab activities include designing new research studies and engaging in ongoing research, giving presentations of works in progress, discussions of recent relevant literature, developing scholarship, multimedia, and policy for publication and dissemination, and occasional outside speakers.
