SITN Lecture - Antibiotic Resistance: Super drugs for superbugs.

  • Sep 25, 2013 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Fall is here! And it's time once again for Science in the News' flagship series of fall lectures. Join us at Harvard Medical School at Longwood for the first of the series, Antibiotic Resistance: Super drugs for superbugs.

For those of you not familiar with SITN's lecture format, lectures are free, accessible, and open to the public. All lectures are given entirely by graduate students at Harvard and focus on hot topics in science research and news.

All lectures are on Wednesdays starting at 7 PM at the Armenise Amphitheater at Harvard Medical School. A team of three graduate students each present a 30-40 minute segment, with breaks for questions and refreshments. The lectures last for about two hours, and are often followed by lab tours.

They will have light refreshments before the lecture (coffee, tea, cookies, etc.)

Here is the full fall schedule:

Best way to get there is by T.  The closest Green Line stops are the E train at Longwood Medical Area, and the D train at Longwood.  The Harvard Medical School Quadrangle is on Longwood Avenue, across from the half traffic circle at Avenue Louis Pasteur.  The Armenise Amphitheater is the first building on the left, as you're facing into the quadrangle.

There is parking at the Masco Garage at 375 Longwood.  Evening rate is $7

We'll gather on the benches outside the main entrance of the Courtyard Cafe (or in the lobby if it's wet out). We should meet at 6:30 so we can go in and have refreshments before the lecture.  Afterwards, we can go to Bertucci's down the street for more food and drinks.

Hope to see you there :)

    I think it builds up connection between science and public. It could be more deep and informative.

    Science brings people together. Education is free like air. Thanks for organizing this. I will attend this seminar and need to cancel other meetings.

    This seminar "Antibiotic Resistance" will have a very important impact for every one.
