Mae-Wan Ho, ‘quantum jazz biologist’, regarded by some as “the most influential scientist alive today”, shows how her science and art bear out the poet John Keats’ enigmatic lines,  Beauty is truth, and truth beauty, and why that is important for reclaiming science (and art) for the public good.

Mae-Wan Ho is Director of the Institute of Science in Society (www.i-sis.org.uk), best known for original work on the physics of organisms and sustainable system and as a strong critic of genetic modification. See her full biography here.
