Dr. Daniel Oerther, the John A. and Susan Mathes Chair of Environmental Engineering at Missouri S&T, has been selected to participate in the National Academies Keck Futures Conference titled “Art and Science, Engineering, and Medicine Frontier Collaborations: Ideation, Translation and Realization.” The conference will be held Nov. 12-14 at the Arnold and Mabel Beckman Center in Irvine, California.

During the event, diverse participants will explore how arts, design, sciences, engineering and medicine can stimulate a renaissance of innovation that solves real-world problems; discover how collaborations can engage the public and other scientists and encourage discourse in important issues; examine how creative disruption and aesthetic experience engage the human mind to stimulate creativity and innovation; and create concrete projects that can lead to at least one of four kinds of impact – educational, cultural, social and scientific.

In its 13th year, the NAFKI Conferences bring together some of the nation’s best and brightest researchers to explore and discover interdisciplinary connections in important areas of cutting-edge research. Oerther was previously invited to participate in the 3rd NAFKI conference in 2005, titled “The Genomic Revolution.”
