A major part of the program will include profiles of outstanding scientists on Big Think, an interactive social networking site that provides information and discussions on politics, law, business and science as a means to support greater public dialogue on thought-provoking issues of national importance. Think Science Now (http://www.pfizer.com/thinksciencenow) seeks to help the public understand science by hearing directly from scientists who share their common values.

"We are thankful to Pfizer for their support of this summer's season and applaud their efforts to create online content that will further recognize scientists worldwide."

Think Science Now on Big Think will feature weekly profiles of exceptional scientists who will discuss their motivation to become scientists, share perspectives about their work, and make their advanced research uncomplicated and easy to u
