Jazz compositions and the dynamic of proteins have more
in common than one might think, at least that is the case for
Dr. Cynthia Peterson.
Serving as the dean of LSU’s College of Science and a lifelong lover
of jazz, Dr. Peterson believes that science and music are seemingly interconnected. Her passion for music and biochemistry have taught her to see how both disciplines are essential to our quality of life.
She recently helped the launch of the blog, the Pursuit, within the College of Science, dedicated to all the interesting things happening in science.
Check out her 2017 TEDxLSU talk below for more on science and all that jazz!
