Nature Network Pub Event Tonight

Posted on : 19-11-2008 | By : Rebecca | In : Event



Last-minute notice! I’ll be attending the Nature Network’s “Dream Big” pub night this evening. Here’s the info from their forum:

What would your dream project in science be? Join us for an informal evening of drinks and conversation about what science would be like if unconstrained by reality.

Two speakers will address this question:

Antoine van Oijen – Department of Biological Chemistry and Molecular Pharmacology, Harvard Medical School – Visualizing life at the molecular scale


Andreas Mershin – Center for Biomedical Engineering, Massachusetts Institute of Technology – ‘Farmable’ solar power

at a special pub night hosted by Nature Network Boston to be held

Wednesday, November 19, 7 PM
Tavern In the Square
730 Massachusetts Ave, Cambridge, MA (in Central Square; on the Red Line and the route of the M2 shuttle from Longwood).
We have reserved a private room for this event – please ask to be directed to the Nature party.

The evening will begin with two 5-10 minute chalk talks from our speakers. The talks will be followed by Q&A and discussion.

Please bring scientists, friends, and labmates for an evening of exploratory science, drinks, hors d’oeuvres, and networking.
