"Dr. Mae-Wan Ho, long-time critic of neo-Darwinism and genetic engineering and pioneer of a “physics of organisms,” is one of the most influential and widely sought-after speakers in the new paradigm of organic science. As Director and co-founder of the Institute of Science in Society and scientific advisor to the Third World Network, she has had plenty of opportunity to put her science in action." [1]
