SITN Lecture - Living Factories: Engineering Cells to Manufacture Molecules

  • Jun 12, 2013 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Join us for the next of the Science in the News Spring Lecture Series, as Kevin Bonham presents Living Factories: Engineering Cells to Manufacture Molecules. Kevin is doing his doctoral research at the Jon Kagan Laboratory at Harvard, where he studies Toll-Like Receptors, a family of microbial detection receptors that are involved with the immune system.

For those who aren't familiar, Science in the News is an organization of Harvard graduate students dedicated to bringing cutting edge research to the public in a fun and informative format.  Their lectures are clear and well presented, and allow for lots of questions and interaction from the audience.

The lecture is from 7:00 to 9:00 (or thereabouts).  We'll begin gathering in the hallway at the entrance to the lecture hall about a half hour beforehand, then go in and get seats about 10-15 minutes before it starts.  There are snacks and refreshments, and afterwards we'll head to one of many Harvard Square watering holes for food, drinks, and discussion.

If you miss the group beforehand, just look for us in the hallway outside the auditorium afterwards - we won't be too hard to find.

Hope to see you there :)

    Enjoyed it. Kept it high level, but just enough to explain how aspirin and insulin can be made industrially. Thoselittle makers could unionize one day.

    You might want to check your GPS data; it's pointing to a backyard over in Huron.

      From the SITN website:


      Street parking is located on Oxford and Kirkland Streets. Ample metered street parking is also available along Massachusetts Avenue. Harvard University also offers visitor parking, but a parking pass must be purchased before hand from their website. Please contact us for further assistance.
