Chemist and filmmaker Valerie Weiss, PhD will be on the Medical Campus Thursday, April 5, from 2-3 p.m. in room L-112, BUSM Instructional Building, to talk about her film, Losing Control. She will discuss how she transitioned from a successful career in science to filmmaking. All students, faculty and staff are invited to this seminar. Dr. Weiss will show the film trailer and several clips from the film.

Losing Control, her first feature film, is a romantic comedy based on her experience in a Harvard University lab, filmed in Cambridge and Boston. It is being shown at the Kendall Square Cinema this Friday, April 6. She will be available at the screening for Q&A.

So take a break from studying or work, learn how she transitioned from science to film; how being a scientist prepared her well for her career as a filmmaker, a career in which she wears many hats, entrepreneur, creator, fundraiser, manager, promoter; and why she thinks science is a great springboard to many careers.
