Meet-Up (10/26) – “Stem Cells and Cancer Research”

The Ann Arbor Science & Skeptics is having a meet-up on Saturday, October 26th from 4:00 to 7:00pm at the Colonial Lanes/Cubs A.C. restaurant. We’ll be in the back room located down the short hallway past the bar.

Our special guest will be Dr. Eugene Manley, an engineer and biologist focusing on the intersection of biology and orthopaedics.  Dr. Manley will talk about his PhD work where he analyzed cancer stem cells in lung cancer, as well as his current research on locating genes that control bone size as a potential target for preventing fracture risk later in life.

The first part of the event will be for general socializing and ordering refreshments. After which, there will be some announcements, and then we will start the conversation at approximately 4:30.

There is no fee for admission but small donations to cover the guest speaker's meal and beverages, as well as group expenses, are welcome.

    I'd like to ask everyone to confirm/update their RSVP for Saturday's meet-up if you needed. I'm going to give a count to the restaurant so that they can have the appropriate amount of tables/chairs set up. Also, there will be another party using the room after our meet-up ends, so we will probably be wrapping up before 7:00pm. That means we may try and get started a bit earlier if convenient.

    Thanks everyone!

      Thanks Lee and Michèle! We won't get started in the conversation portion of the event until 4:30-4:45. The extra time beforehand is just for ordering food/beverages if desired, and some general socializing. We'll have a server that comes around and takes food/drink orders.

    This sounds like it will be an excellent meetup. Unfortunately, at this time, I have a schedule conflict and will not be able to attend.
