To join virtually use this zoom link: https://iu.zoom.us/j/84865289237


Over the course of 24 hours, scholars and practitioners from around the globe will present and discuss their work in a fun and accessible style. We will feature behind-the-scenes videos, demonstrate valuable tools and methodologies, and have fun exploring the human body “landscape” across scale!

We hope the event will help kickoff the holiday season, create ever more excitement for the power and value of science, share the pleasures of scientific discovery, and give good energy to all on this planet who have been affected by the ongoing pandemic.
