  • Getting the Science Right in Hollywoodby Headliners John Sotos, Donna Nelson, and David Saltzberg - writers, consultants, and advisors to hit TV Series Watch Preview Video Einstein Stage Saturday, 02:30 PM - 03:30 PM 60 Minutes Add to Schedule!

    Special Note: John Sotos will be signing his book at book signing table 3 on Saturday at 4:00PM.

    John Sotos, Donna Nelson, and David Saltzberg will also help host the Kavli Science Video Awards Ceremony on the Einstein Stage on Saturday at 3:30 PM.

    Why is it so important to get the science correct in TV and film? Ask that question to organic chemist Donna Nelson, particle physicist David Saltzberg, and physician John Sotos and you'll get valuable insight into why they serve as science advisers to some of the hottest science/medical TV shows on the air today.

    Meet these science celebrities and hear their viewpoints as they participate in "Getting the Science Right in Hollywood", a revealing and insightful panel discussion moderated by Mariette DiChristina, who oversees Scientific American, ScientificAmerican.com, Scientific American Mind and all newsstand special editions.

    John Sotos, M.D. – He’s both a physician (who wrote the definitive book on mysterious medical diagnoses) and a noted computer scientist – which makes him admirably suited for his role as medical technical advisor to the hit TV series, House, MD, and science advisor to the sci-fi show, Torchwood: Miracle Day.

    Donna Nelson, professor of Organic Chemistry at the University of Oklahoma, serves as science advisor to AMC's popular show, Breaking Bad. She was selected for the program after reading an article in Chemical and Engineering News about how the show's producer was seeking ongoing chemistry advice involving the program's main character, Walt (an organic chemistry high school teacher). Says Donna: "I thought, 'I can do this!' Chemists and other scientists are always complaining about poor, inaccurate science that appears in movies and television shows. This is an opportunity to do something about it."

    David Saltzberg, a world-renowned particle physicist at the University of California, Los Angeles, serves as science consultant for CBS TV's The Big Bang Theory, which boasts 12 million viewers each week. David is known for his attention to getting the science right without detracting from the mood and direction of the sitcom. In enhancing the show's script, he says: "I often choose something new, so people can learn about recent science discoveries." For example, he adds, "I've put in references to the CERN super-collider and to recent discoveries relating to dark matter."

  • John Sotos -- The Physical Lincolnby John Sotos Watch Preview Video
    Book Signing Table 3 Saturday, 04:00 PM - 05:00 PM 60 Minutes Add to Schedule!

    Special Note: John Sotos will perform on the Einstein Stage at 2:30PM.  He will also help host the Kavli Science Video Awards Ceremony on the Einstein Stage on Saturday at 3:30 PM.

    Renowned cardiologist John Sotos serves as medical adviser to TV's hit series House MD and BBC America’s sci fi show Torchwood: Miracle Day. He is also a computer scientist with a Master’s degree in artificial intelligence from Stanford and holds six patents, in addition to being a flight surgeon and noted medical author-historian specializing in the American Presidency.
    His groundbreaking book, The Physical Lincoln, offers a solution to one of the most enduring mysteries in American history: What made Abraham Lincoln so tall, thin, and his countenance so melancholy and less than attractive? What gave him his long limbs, high voice, and astonishing joint flexibility?  The author, in never-before-proposed solution, points to Lincoln's DNA and the rare genetic disorder called MEN2B. In fact, Dr. Sotos provides evidence showing that, had Lincoln not been shot, he would have died from advanced cancer in less than a year as a result of MEN2B.
    Dr. Sotos is also author of two companion books to The Physical Lincoln:  The Physical Lincoln Complete, and The Physical Lincoln Sourcebook.  He also penned the popular clinical book, Zebra Cards: An Aid to Obscure Diagnosis, which has become a classic in providing insight into unexplained diseases and symptoms.

    The Kavli Foundation’s Science Video Contest is the Festival’s most popular national student STE(A)M competition.

    Join us at the Festival Expo when the winners of this year’s contest are announced at a special Kavli Video Competition Awards Ceremony, hosted by popular Washington, DC radio deejay Tommy McFly.

    This year’s Kavli contest challenged 6th through 12th graders to create a video that investigates science as portrayed in television, films and video games. 

    McFly will be joined on stage in the ceremony by three noted Hollywood TV science consultants who know a thing or two about science accuracy in TV and cinema:  chemist Donna Nelson, advisor to Breaking Bad; physician John Sotos, consultant to House, MD; and David Saltzberg, the particle physicist who is science advisor to The Big Bang Theory.

    These experts  are participating in the Expo’s “Getting the Science Right in Hollywood” panel discussion, immediately preceding the Kavli Video Contest awards ceremony.
