Ethan Perlstein, Crowdsourcing Science Funding

Dr. Ethan Perlstein is a Princeton researcher studying what actually happens at the cellular level with methamphetamines. While his research is new, so too is his method for funding it. Dr Perlstein has successfully raised money for his work through crowdsourcing. He is also pioneering a new ‘Open Science’ approach towards research. Is this the future of scientific funding and discovery? Dr. Perlstien will share his ‘Nate Silver’ statistical approach to crowdsourcing. You be the judge.
