Research is constantly evolving. As Smithsonian scientists venture out into the field-from working with local communities to exploring delicate environments-they develop new ways of thinking about everyday problems.

Research zoologist and curator of parasitic worms, Anna Phillips, who led the team that discovered a new species of bloodsucking medicinal leech with three jaws and up to 177 teeth just outside of Washington, DC, will show us why parasites are so much more interesting and important than their bad reputation would lead us to believe.

Steve Canty, marine biologist and coordinator of Smithsonian's Marine Conservation Program, will share stories of his work conducting research on marine reserves and fisheries in Latin America and the Caribbean and suggest that successful conservation strategies are as much about people as about ecosystems.

Afterward, spend time chatting with the scientists and seeing objects from the museum's collection that inspire their work.
