Are We More Than Our Biology?

Joanna Meyer

Many Christians working in the sciences struggle to integrate their spiritual and professional lives. In this presentation, you get a glimpse of how researcher Praveen Sethupathy, genomicist and researcher at Cornell University, holds his callings in tension.  


Praveen will join Denver Institute on Feb. 15 for "Callings in Conflict," an event examining science and faith together, and inviting believers who work in the sciences to celebrate God in their work.
